The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday described the decision of Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki to come into its fold as “courageous and patriotic.”

The party, in a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary on Tuesday evening, also welcomed all returning and new members accompanying Governor Obaseki to the PDP.

“The party praised the commitment, dedication and sacrifices of PDP leaders, critical stakeholders and teeming members in Edo state, who had continued to work hard to keep the party alive and made it attractive to the people of Edo State.

“The party stressed that Edo has always been home to the PDP, adding that a PDP government will always put the interest of the people first in line with the party’s manifesto and guiding principles.

“The PDP reassures all members of strict adherence to the principles of internal democracy in all its activities.”

    Godwin Obaseki dumped APC yesterday and joined PDP today! It appears very smooth and quick. This should worry Nigerians and Edo people. Are these two political parties so similar that you can exit one this minute and enter the club house of the other the next? Are there socio-political and economic differences/policies and views between the two parties or it is just all about posts and positions for Godwin Obaseki?

    The truism about politics in Nigeria as that of bread and butter – maybe even that of Prado and Pajero is again at play? Politics in Nigeria is so bad and sordid that the interests of the masses no longer drive political affiliations and relationships. Obaseki is not going to the PDP to defend the interests of the masses of Edo State. He is going there to further his own political agenda and his desperation to hold tight to Edo State Governorship – and this is condemnable and disgusting.

    Obaseki and his deputy are not worthy of emulation and do not deserve the vote of anyone in Edo State. They are political jobbers who have no shame as they scamper to find the next likely party whose platform they can use today and likely dump tomorrow. May they never find bread and never find butter in PDP.
