The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has reacted to the resignation of Governor Godin Obaseki of Edo state from the ruling All Progressives Congres (APC).
Recall that Governor Obaseki resigned his APC membership over his disqualification from contesting the party’s primaries by a screening committee over issues with his HSC and NYSC certificates.
In a statement on Tuesday evening by his spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, the governor, however, said that he has not decided on the new platform party with which he would seek a second term.
He said: “We have not moved to any party yet, even though we are in talks with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The decision we will eventually take will be in the best interest of Edo people and our supporters.”
Reacting to the development on Tuesday night, Secondus mocked the embattled national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshimole over the resignation of Obaseki from the party.
The PDP chairman noted that since Oshimole became the APC chairman, the opposition party has recovered 6 States, and Edo could be the next state for his party.
He said: “The way Oshiomole is dashing us states, sometimes we would think he’s our agent working for us free. Since he became APC chairman we have recovered 6 States, and Edo could be the next.”
