Godwin Obaseki, the re-elected governor of Edo State, has asked the people of the state to deal with him any day he attempts to be a godfather.
Mr Obaseki stated this today while addressing at the State House, Abuja, where he went to thank President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said having defeated his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, who wanted to be the godfather in the state, he is not aiming to succeed him in that regard.
The governor asked the people of the state to deal with him the way they dealt with the erstwhile APC helmsman should he attempts to become one.
He also spoke on returning to the All Progressive Congress (APC) which disqualified him from using its platform for seeking re-election.
Due to the political differences he had with Mr Oshiomhole, when the latter held sway as the national chairman of the APC, Obaseki was disqualified over his academic credentials said to be deceptive. The incumbent decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party PDP where he was admitted and subsequently became its flagbearer for the September 19 contest.
He won the exercise, trouncing his opponent, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, who had the backing of Mr Oshiomhole.
Speaking further, Obaseki told State House correspondents that returning back to his former party is not in his agenda at the moment as such will erode his integrity.
