Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, on Friday, formally defected to the Peoples Democratic Party.
This followed his disqualification from the Edo governorship race by the All Progressives Congress.
The Edo governor is currently at the Edo State Secretariat of the PDP in Benin-City to pick up his membership card.
He was received by the state PDP Chairman, Hon Tony Aziegbemi.
Also, the National Secretariat of the main opposition party in Abuja announced Obaseki’s defection on its verified Twitter handle, saying, “The Governor of Edo State, H. E. Governor Obaseki has defected to our great Party, the @OfficialPDPNig. The declaration was made this afternoon at the state Secretariat of our party in Benin City, Edo State. Power to the people.”
The Edo governor himself, in a video clip attached to the tweet, enjoined all Nigerians “within the state and across the country, to become a member of PDP.”
