Governor Obaseki Set To Join PDP Along With 18 Local Local Government Chiefs, Says Aide

By Olvia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Following his resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, is set to join the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, later this week, alongside 18 Local Government Council Chairmen, according to a close aide.

This move is said to be part of strategies meant to actualize Obaseki’s second term ambition in the September 19 Governorship election in Edo State, according to the aide, who also revealed that the governor had the loyalty of all the 18 council chairmen, as well as a significant proportion of the members of the State House of Assembly, who had all pledged their unalloyed support for the governor and were ready to decamp with him to the PDP, despite attempts by some individual to muzzle them.

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), alongside his Deputy, Philip Shaibu, following his disqualification by the party’s screening committee from contesting for the party’s ticket in the September, 2019 Gubernatorial Election.
