BREAKING: Obaseki’s membership card is ready - Edo PDP

The Edo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that the party membership card of Governor Godwin Obaseki is ready.

Chief Tony Azegbemi, the state chairman of the party, made this known in an interview with Daily Trust on Wednesday.

According to the PDP chairman, Obaseki has already registered with the opposition party in his ward, adding that the governor will decamp to the PDP when he returns from a trip to Abuja.

He said: “At the moment, Obaseki is in Abuja but when he returns to Benin, his card is ready and he has already registered with our party in his ward. We are ready to welcome Governor Obaseki and we are excited he is joining our party.”

Reacting to the claim, the Media Aide to the governor, Crusoe Osagie, said the claim by the PDP chairman cannot be confirmed because his principal has not made any pronouncement.

He reiterated the governor's earlier position that he has not moved to a new platform yet to seek re-election.

“The governor will make an announcement in respect of anything like that (going to PDP) but he has not spoken, so we cannot confirm it until he speaks. The last time he spoke he said he would consult with his supporters and announce where he is going to,” he said.
