Jonathan Ayuba-led All Progressive Congress’ screening committee had disqualified the governor on Friday, June 12, in what confirmed his fear amid feud with Adams Oshiomhole.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a reaction declared its readiness to receive the governor should he decide to defect from the ruling APC ahead of the oncoming election scheduled for September.

Speaking on a radio programme “The Weekend Show’ on Africa Independent Television on Saturday, June 13, Aziegbemi said the governor is not the member of the party and may not contest under it.

“As we speak, His Excellency Governor Godwin Obaseki has not joined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,” the Edo state chapter of PDP said.

He also explained that should the governor decide to defect to the opposition party, he may not be able to contest in ins primary unless the national working committee of PDP grants him a waiver.
