2020: Obaseki May Defect To PDP by mrakeli62: 5:31am On Sep 07
Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki’s second term bid might see the light of day if the rumours making the rounds in Benin City about his alleged plan defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are anything to go by. Recent romance with big PDP chieftains in the state will further attest to the fact that the Edo Peoples Movement (EPM), top members of the APC ruling party in Edo, are not willing to make peace with Obaseki, hence the governor, who is popularly known as ‘wake and see’ is considering the PDP option. Fillers reaching Saturday Telegraph revealed that Obaseki and the PDP state Chairman, Chief Dan. Orbih, are currently in the US, allegedly holding meetings over his defection. It will also be recalled that the Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, recently held a closed door meeting with Obaseki shortly before the governor travelled to the US. A PDP source, who is privy to this, said:

“As I speak with you now from New York in the US, I want to say that I’m very happy with the current romance between Obaseki and the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State. “Edo State does not belong to a particular group of persons or politicians, we are all stakeholders in the state, and we will support a governor that mean well for the poor masses. I would advise governor Obaseki to be focused because I can see that people who do not want good life for the poor masses of Edo people are bent on ensuring that Obaseki does not return to the government house in 2020. “As a concerned citizen of Edo State, I want to say that we are ready to back Obaseki if he gets a ticket from another political platform.



“Greedy Edo politicians are not happy with him simply because it is no longer business as usual where they pack the people’s money to foreign banks abroad, thereby impoverishing the people and making life miserable for them. With the current move by Obaseki, I’m very sure that Edo electorate, who voted massively for him in 2016, will come out in their thousands to vote for him again.” However, efforts to get Obaseki’s media aide, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, comment on this new development proved abortive as at the time of filling this report.

It is an open secret that he is moving.
Forget all those picture sham that Obaseki and Oshiomole throw at us in the name of reconciliation; the fact remains that Oshiomole and his gang of looters are not ready to live in financial stagnation come next Governorship regime in Edo state.
Very anyhow people.

with or without APC, Obaseki will retain his seat.

The Benin with Majority voices are solidly behind him, the Esan people who occupy a large space will be the last to pledge loyalty for Oshiomole'

Philip shaibu's votes has divided the estako people '

Oshiomole better blend so he might be carried along in next dispensation, Edo state has gone past that stage where one man will determine who leaves ..

If Obaseki decamps to Pdp, he's the greatest fool of all time. He needs to get a party where he can control the delegates list during the party primaries. He can't do that in APC or Pdp.

PDP needs Obaseki than he needs them, they see him as a meal ticket. The greatest mistake a politician can make is to mistake supporters for registered voters. If you have lots of supporters but few registered voters supporting you, you're done for.

Those who vote in elections don't make noise online and those who make noise online don't vote during elections.

The question is: does Obaseki have registered voters supporting him or he's relying on noisy supporters?

It won't be in his best interest to decamp sha, he would get the APC ticket las las.



The 24/24 house of assembly seat tell you that APC does election runs whichever way it turns.



When last has PDP won a local election in Edo sef, his decamping would mean open war o (the bini palace would claim blind and watch oshomole rape him with federal might).


Masses would sowore you, PDP has no capacity to shield you instead run from you to avoid probe

We have started again here deciding who the next governor of a state is. Going by social media, none of those in d offices today will be there.

Please Obaseki, lemme give u a clue, assign people to monitor all social media for u, whenever you are getting massive support there, please restrategize coz u are actually losing in reality.

Most of them have never been to Edo State before

Re: 2020: Obaseki May Defect To PDP by Peacecore: 9:14am On Sep 07
This is how Obaseki is going. It's a pity he doesn't understand politics. Oshiomole has been in politics for years n know every nook n cranny both for free n unfree election.
Obaseki may get 20k likes n Oshiomole only 1 but d poll will show different thing.
I'm not for Oshiomole if he mean bad for Edo ppl but Obaseki shld try hard n make peace with him bcoz dis how Ambode was pushed by likes n share. U may say that Edo is not Lagos but politics involves more than good governance.

EFCC, now that you have heared this, what are you waiting for, such person could help.
