Obaseki said he and the President engaged on development issues affecting the people of the state including the case management of the coronavirus pandemic.
“My relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari is that of a father and son. I was on a zoom meeting with the President, during which we engaged on development issues affecting Edo people and Nigerians. We also discussed measures to manage the spread of COVID-19,” he wrote on Facebook with some photos of the meeting.
The governor, who is seeking reelection on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, however, did not disclose whether the politics of the day was discussed with the President.
Recall that Godwin Obaseki dumped the All Progressives Congress after he was denied the chance to contest in the party’s primaries.
He later joined the Peoples Democratic Party where he bagged the party’s ticket for the 2020 governorship election.
