Recall that the Party disqualified him from the primaries amid the ongoing feud with Adams Oshiomhole.

In the aftermath of the controversial decision, Obaseki disclosed that he wasn’t going to appeal the decision because Oshiomhole is the ‘Supreme Court’ of the All Progressive Congress.

Based on the message he shared on his official Twitter handle, he has now joined PDP.

“I have officially joined the @OfficialPDPNig to advance my ambition to seek re-election as Governor of Edo State,” he wrote.

“I, as always, remain committed to engendering good governance and sustainable development of our dear state.”

Sequel to this decision, he visited the Aso Villa and thereafter announced that he had quit the APC.

Godwin Obaseki became governor of Edo State on 29 September 2016. His bid for reelection in the forthcoming Edo state gubernatorial election has now seen him switch sides.
