Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State who had earlier on Friday defected to the major opposition party Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the All Progressive Congress (APC) has picked the governorship form to contest in the PDP’s primary elections.
Indeed, the party has shifted its governorship primary from June 19 and 20 to June 23, in what sources said, is to accommodate ‘’the interest’’ of the governor.
Obaseki was disqualified from the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship primary scheduled for June 22. He resigned from the party, and now seeking his second term through the platform of the PDP.
In the last few days he has held a series of parleys with PDP governors and stakeholders. On Wednesday night, he met with PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, and four PDP governors – Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Aminu Tambuwal (Sokoto), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), and Emmanuel Udom (Akwa Ibom) after which the PDP primary was rescheduled.
