Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), days after resigning from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Obaseki is said to have resigned after APC’s screening committee for the Edo State governorship election, declared him unfit to contest the election. Obaseki was disqualified on the grounds that his academic and National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificates were “defective”.

A tweet shared on the official Twitter page of the PDP reads:
