#EdoDecides: Solomon Edebiri Leaves PDP by NgeneUkwenu(f): 9:09pm On Jul 17, 2016
The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has taken a new twist as one of the core aspirants, Chief Solomon Edebiri, who felt cheated in the last governorship primaries has resigned his membership from the party.

In a letter dated 15 July, signed by Chief Edebiri, which was made available to newsmen in Benin City, Edebiri expressed gratitude to all those who contributed to his political career.

He said, “After careful review of my political affiliation with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Edo State Chapter and having consulted with family and friends on recent political activities in Edo State, I hereby resign my membership of the People’s Democratic Party with effect from the date on this letter. I am grateful to all those in PDP who contributed in one way or the other to my political career development”.

Meanwhile, the State chairman of the PDP, Chief Dan Orbih, it was gathered in Benin City, has rejected the resignation, saying all doors are not yet shut at reconciliation. But when contacted, he refused to comment on the development.

It would be recalled that after the primaries, Chief Edebiri was approached by several members who were attempting to break away from PDP and the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) to sponsor one of the registered political parties in order to contend with the main parties which they believe have lost credibility.
However, information obtained disclosed that Edebiri refused to go through with it as he was quoted to have said “I don’t want anything to dent my public image.”
A source who didn’t want to be named but privy to the arrangement said, “The alternative platform plans did not materialise majorly because Chief Edebiri ran on a ‘credibility and integrity’ platform. The committee he set up feels and Chief Edebiri bought the idea that going into such an arrangement will be against the image he has built for himself.”


The source also said that the senator representing Edo south, Senator Matthew Urhogide and the PDP flag bearer, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu have quickly reached out to Edebiri in order to stop him if possible.


Since the governorship primaries, PDP has divided against itself as members accused the party leadership of manipulating the result by making the delegates to take oaths to vote for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Another one has started his Journey into an abysmal Political Wilderness. The APC is full, so do not start negotiating to come into our fold, as we will reject you as a progressive.

PDP in Disarray at both the National and Local Level.

I have always known Solomon iyobosa edibiri won't last in PDP. just like nuhu ribadu, this is another case of political miscalculation, but this time on the part of edebiri. I can still vividly remember how we treasured him after the birth of APC, he was part of ANPP that formed APC and our plan was to support and present him as our next gov after oshiomole.

But been a man with no foresight he dumped APC for PDP thinking he had a better chance of becoming a gov under PDP because PDP were in federal.

Now it has backfired and Edebiri is now confused politically. come back to apc, we will embrace you back but this time you won't be seen and taken as a leader but a mere ward member, this is your punishment Mr Solomon Iyobosa Edebiri. Same treatment will also be melted out to chief tom ikimi.

All are for personal selfish interests.
Once their demands are not met behind closed doors,they come outside to publicly declare their 'dumpping the party'. And people who wouldn't have gotten a dime if the demand was agreed will sheepishly follow them.
Some will come online like this to celebrate the man's personal hustle moves.

The last time we spoke on phone, he told me everything and why we should support him. He has a very good vision for Edo State and he is very simple, trustworthy and straight forward. 2ndly he is not fit for Nigeria politics because Nigeria isn't ripe enough for his type of games. Gentleman don't win election in Nigeria. He wasn't ready to bribe delegates and the few that followed him betrayed him the last minute because they were compromise. Nigeria politics is all about money.

I believed in him though.

It is this type of thread that gives obaseki the strong believe that he is going to win the election. If u are on ground here in edo, common sense that is so common will tell APC will certainly loose this election.

That was how they came on Nairaland before the last Bayelsa election to create the impression that Sylva and APC had support in Bayelsa,thereby giving Sylva the false impression that he was going to win. When the election day arrived,the people in the state(not some youths with Mb in Lagos) did the voting and sylva and apc were beaten convincingly in all the LGA's(except his own LGA).
They have started again

Dough osho healed it but more needs to be done. POI is a cultist now, u can't compare him to obaseki in anyway! Its just dat obaseki is not a politician! But den again edo pple are wiser now! Edo north is apc lockdown, I remember odubu was almost attcked for goin against osho in auchi not to talk of POI from pdp

. Bros, the people voted massively for oshiomole during his his reelection in 2012. The op is writing from lagos n not here in edo to see the true reality on ground that oshiomoles candidate is a sure looser. Market women, civil servant, bus drivers n many others want to kick their ass out of power.

Wen ppl say PDP ll win Edo state, i wonder how dt is going to happen.

There are 3 senatorial districts in Edo state n APC is popular and accepted in 2, that is Edo North and Edo south. So in a free and fair contest, APC is certain of abt 68% votes.

As it is now in Nigeria, it is only a teenager that will expect the September 10 election to be free and fair. Mark my words, it wont. APC is going to carry the day.
