BREAKING: PDP Grants Obaseki, Deputy Waiver To Contest



The People Democratic Party (PDP) has given waivers on its platform to Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki and his deputy Philip Shuaibu, Live News Nigeria reports.

This comes days after the governor dumped the All Progressive Congress, picking up his PDP membership card at the secretariat of the party in Benin City, today’s state capital.

Addressing party officials, the governor said after his defection he will automatically become the state’s PDP leader.

Obaseki also reaffirmed his determination to provide what he described as quality leadership, adding that he was ready to lead the party to victory in the September 19 governorship election.

After displaying his membership card, he said: “I automatically become the leader of this party. I want to assure all of you (that) I am prepared to provide leadership.

“I am prepared to provide leadership that will lead this party to victory. I am prepared to provide leadership that will not only put PDP into office in Edo State but as a ruling party in Edo State, we will make sure that the level of progress, growth and participation in the political system and our people is unrivalled in this country.

“I am very happy to be here. With the reception I have received since I drove in here has been ecstatic. The energy I see in this party is the kind of energy I require to take Edo to the level we should go to next.”
