PDP confirms readiness to accept Governor Obaseki
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared its readiness to receive Governor Godwin Obaseki should he decide to defect from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the oncoming Edo election.
The Nation reports that the PDP confirmed that its doors are open to the Edo state chief executive through its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan.
The report, however, noted that Obaseki has yet to make the move to leave the APC despite being disqualified by the party’s screening committee from contesting its primaries slated for Monday, June 22.
The opposition spokesperson said the party would readily welcome Obaseki. On the issue of him contesting the PDP’s primaries or representing the party in the elections coming up later in the year, Ologbodiyan said the governor should not expect an automatic ticket.
