Edo: Obaseki resigns from PDP


Benjamin Obaseki, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Oredo Local Government of Edo State, has resigned his membership in the party.

DAILY POST reports that Obaseki tendered his letter of resignation dated June 12, 2024, to the local government chairman of the party.

Until his resignation, he was an ex-official of the Oredo Local Government chapter of the party and a member of Ward 10.

According to him: “I am writing to formally inform you of my resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party. It has been incredible and a pleasure to be part of the one-time big political family we built together that fostered a lot of victories.

“I sincerely regret this decision to resign from the party that I joined in building from scratch, but I am convinced it is time for me to leave for my growth as the leadership of the party has lost touch with its members and hence become insensitive to my plight.

“I believe the Peoples Democratic Party is great but with the likes of the governor as leaders of the party, there is no hope for the future. It is a pity that the infighting that has engulfed the party at the state level will consume the party and I do not intend to be consumed alongside it.”
