The Deputy Speaker said he had no reason to join Governor Godwin Obaseki in his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or to back his re-election, noting that the non-performing Obaseki administration had failed to initiate any developmental project in his constituency despite his intervention efforts.

He said:

“There is no reason for me to defect to another party because there is no project in my village to show that the current administration is working.”
