The Edo State chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Tony Azegbemi has said that the party membership card of Governor Godwin Obaseki was ready.
This is contrary to Obaseki’s post on his twitter handle yesterday that, “I have not moved to a new platform yet to seek re-election.”
Azegbemi in an exclusive phone chat disclosed to Daily Trust that Obaseki who resigned from APC on Tuesday, will join PDP any time he returns from Abuja.
“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,” he said.
Obaseki’s spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, said he cannot confirm the claim because the governor has not made any pronouncement.
“The governor will make a announcement in respect of any thing like that (going to PDP) but he has not spoken, so we cannot confirm it untill he speaks. The last time he spoke he said he would consult with his supporters and announce where he is going to,” he said.
