Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki has been confirmed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to have joined the party ahead of the September guber poll.
Classic International Magazine recalls that Obaseki on Monday announced his resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC), three days after, the party’s screening committee disqualified him from partaking in its primaries.
Chairman of the PDP in Edo state, Mr. Tony Azegbemi said Obaseki has registered with the party, adding, “We are ready to welcome governor Obaseki and we are excited he is joining our party.”
According to him, “At the moment, Obaseki is in Abuja, but his card is ready and he has already registered with our party in his ward.
“I just finished a State Working Committee (SWC) meeting now, where we affirmed that we are welcoming him with open arms to our party.”
On the PDP’s governorship ticket, Azegbemi disclosed that the governor would go through the party’s constitutional processes.
