Some news platform on Friday alleged that the embattled governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki has defected to PDP and has been admitted by the party.
Recall that Obaseki was disqualified by the APC’s seven-man screening committee from participating in June 22 governorship primary on the grounds of its inability to verify the authenticity of his NYSC discharge certificate and what it called the Governor’s defective Higher School Certificate
Reacting to the rumours, the PDP National Secretariat led by Mr Kola Ologbondiyan counteracted the speculation. He said ” Obaseki has not joined the party at any level.
He emphasized that “PDP has principles, processes and procedure. Joining our party is a procedural issue. He [Obaseki] has to join the party at the ward level. As we speak, there is no information at the national secretariat that he has joined the party at the ward level. He has not”.
