Edo 2020: “we will accept him if he approaches us for membership” – PDP reacts to Obaseki disqualification



After the dramatic disqualification of the Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki by the screaming panel of All progressive Congress (APC), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said  it would gladly welcome Obaseki, into its fold if he decides to switch party.

Recall that the APC screening committee had on Friday disqualified the governor from the June 22 governorship primaries in Edo State.

The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, who made this known to journalists, however, said the state governor had not approached the PDP for membership.

He however stressed that the governor would not get an automatic ticket if he eventually joins the party.

Ologbondiyan said: “Yes of course, we will accept him if he approaches us for membership.

“Joining a party is different from contesting election. These are two separate things.

“People join political parties from their wards. We are in touch with our Edo State chapter and they have not told us that the governor had joined our party.”
