Amidst rumours that he is set to join PDP Governors, including Dave Umahi (Ebonyi); Ben Ayade (Cross River), and Bello Matawalle (Zamfara) who recently joined the APC, Obaseki said he remains fully committed to PDP.
According to a statement by the PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, Obaseki declared he is committed to serving Edo under the “stable, people-oriented and democratic structure” of the PDP.
The Governor was quoted to have urged Nigerians to remain steadfast in their determination of supporting the PDP to “rescue the nation from the misrule of the APC”.
He was further quoted to have urged Nigerians to turn out en masse and register with the PDP as the party’s nationwide online electronic registration of members takes off in two weeks’ time.
Obaseki, who is the chairman of PDP’s e-registration exercise was said to have addressed members of the PDP e-registration committee in Abuja and explained that the pilot scheme of the exercise will begin in Edo and Anambra States.
“Nigerians must key into the e-registration exercise of the PDP as the party remains the solution to the myriads of problems confronting our nation today under the APC.
