Embattled Edo Governor Godwin Obaseki has joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He joined the opposition party at its State Secretariat in Benin.
Obaseki confirms the development in a tweet on his official handle.
Obaseki had been disqualified from seeking reelection by the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) on the grounds that he possesses “defective qualifications.”
I have officially joined the @OfficialPDPNig to advance my ambition to seek re-election as Governor of Edo State.
I, as always, remain committed to engendering good governance and sustainable development of our dear state.
