Governor Obaseki declares for PDP, set to grab party’s ticket for Edo guber poll

With the formal declaration and defection to the leading opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Governor Godwin Obaseki is set to emerge the PDP candidate for the 2020 Edo governorship election.

The primary, which was moved to Monday and Tuesday to accommodate the Governor, was earlier slated for Friday and Saturday.

Indeed, his formal declaration for the party means the effective take-over of Edo State from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Obaseki resigned from the APC after being controversially disqualified from contesting the party’s forthcoming gubernatorial primary election.
