Governor Godwin Obaseki minutes ago finally made his long-awaited defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
His declaration for the party means the effective take-over of the state from the All Progressives Congress (APC) from which he resigned recently after being controversially disqualified from contesting the party’s forthcoming gubernatorial primary.
Obaseki is expected to emerge the PDP candidate for the 2020 Edo governorship election.
“Breaking News! The governor of Edo State, H. E. @GovernorObaseki has defected to our great Party, the @OfficialPDPNig. The declaration was made this afternoon at the state Secretariat of our party in Benin city, Edo State. Power to the people. #EdoIsPDP. @officialKola”
