Governor Obaseki formally joins PDP

Gov Obaseki

We are yet to see the end of the political drama in Edo state as the Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki formally joins the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The governor made this known on Friday the 19 June 2020 when he led some of his appointees and supporters to the PDP secretariat in Benin-City. The leadership of the PDP had on Wednesday met with Mr Obaseki who is seeking a second term in office
Mr Obaseki was disqualified by his former party, APC, from seeking re-election allegedly for submitting questionable certificates. The Edo governor later announced his resignation from the APC. However, the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, whom Mr Obaseki blames for his travails has now been suspended from office, following an appeal court ruling.

In his presentation, the governor assured his new party that all effort will be made to consolidate the principle of PDP in the state. So many congratulations have been flying through since yesterday including that Mr Atiku Abubarkar, the former flag bearer of PDP in the last presidential race.
