"#EdoPostElection: Governors @GovWike @AWTambuwal, Ahmadu Fintiri, @seyiamakinde  are currently in Benin, the Edo State Capital to join @GovernorObaseki and other PDP Leaders on a THANK YOU visit to The Oba of Benin, Omo N’ Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare N’Ogidgan II," the official handle of PDP wrote.

AllNews had earlier reported that Obaseki visited President Muhammadu Buhari to thank him for keeping to his promise of not interfering with the Edo State Governorship election.

Obaseki during his visit to Buhari revealed that the President told him that he congratulated him reluctantly.

He defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC).

Obaseki who used to be a member of APC dumped the party after he was disqualified from contesting at the party's primary.

He however moved to PDP where he was handed the party's ticket to contest at the governorship election.
