The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Edo State’s Chapter, has announced that the governor Obaseki PDP membership card is ready.
The Chairman of PDP, Edo State Chapter, Chief Tony Azegbemi, disclosed this during an interview with journalist on Wednesday.
According to Chief Tony, Obaseki has already registered with the opposition party in his ward, adding that the governor will decamp to the PDP when he returns from a trip to 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.”
The Media Aide to the governor,Crusoe Osagie, has ruled out the claim, saying that it cannot be confirmed because the governor has not made any pronouncement concerning his decamping or acquiring any membership card.
He also said that the governor has not moved to a new platform yet to seek re-election.
“The governor will make an announcement in respect of anything like that (going to PDP) but he has not spoken, so we cannot confirm it until he speaks. The last time he spoke he said he would consult with his supporters and announce where he is going to,” he said.
