Edo currently becomes centre of attraction as Governor Godwin Obaseki formally joined Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP ) despite plea from APC Governors Forum.
Governor Godwin Obaseki confirmed his defection on Friday afternoon via his official twitter handle which reads: “I have officially joined the @OfficialPDPNig
to advance my ambition to seek re-election as Governor of Edo State.
I, as always, remain committed to engendering good governance and sustainable development of our dear state”.
Governor Godwin Obaseki’s deception did not come as surprise as he has earlier been disqualified by illegal screening committee self imposed by suspended national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomole.
Meanwhile, APC Governors Forum have earlier begged Governor Godwin Obaseki not to defect as they said they would ensure he gets justice but the plea came rather too late as Governor Godwin Obaseki has moved on with his political ambition.
