The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) said it is ready to accept the embattled Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, if he is willing to join the main opposition party.

KanyiDaily had reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) screening committee on Friday disqualified Governor Obaseki from the party’s June 22 governorship primaries in Edo State.

Obaseki’s disqualification was due to the committee’s judgement that the governor’s school leaving certificate and NYSC certificate are defective.

Reacting while speaking with The Nations, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan said his party is ready to welcome Obaseki if he decides to decamp.

Asked if the PDP was ready to admit the governor into its fold, Ologbondiyan said: “Yes, we will accept him of course”.

The party spokesman, however, said Obaseki had yet to approach the PDP for membership, noting that the embattled governor would not get an automatic ticket if he joins PDP.

“Joining a party is different from contesting election. These are two separate things.

“People join political parties from their wards. We are in touch with our Edo State chapter and they have not told us that the governor had joined our party,” Ologbondiyan said.

Meanwhile, Governor Obaseki has said that he will not appeal the outcome of the screening exercise which disqualified him from participating in the APC primary election.
