By Tunde Olorungbotemi

Governor Obaseki was received by the leadership of the party led Edo PDP Chairman, Hon Tony Aziegbemi at the state Secretariat  along 1st East Circular Road.

Top political appointees and the governor’s followers accompanied the governor to the party secretariat.

He will contest PDP Primaries for Edo 2020 governorship poll alongside three other aspirants on June 23.

Recall Obaseki dumped APC following his disqualification by party’s Screening Committee last week.

Meanwhile, the All progressives Congress (APC) says the decision by Governor Godwin Obaseki to defect to the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) did not come to it as a surprising development.

Spokesperson of the APC, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu gave the reaction while speaking with journalists in Abuja.

“It has not come to us as a surprise. We knew he had defected long ago because he resigned his membership of the party which we have accepted,” Issa-Onilu said.

“So you can’t defect twice. So if he is defecting again, we don’t know whether what he has just done now is news any longer.”

Note that Obaseki formally defected to PDP and was received at Edo Secretariat of PDP by National Vice Chairman, Southsouth of the party, Chief Emmanuel Ogidi, who was accompanied by Edo PDP chairman Dr. Tony Aziegbemi; members of the State Working Committee (SWC) and some chieftains of the party.

The reception of about ten minutes took place in Aziegbemi’s office.
