No Hope For PDP In Edo, Obaseki’s Brother Benjamin Says In Resignation Letter



The haemorrhage in the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP continued on Thursday with Hon Benjamin Obaseki, a blood brother of Governor Godwin Obaseki,  joining the exodus saying that there is no hope for the party in the state. reports that besides Obaseki, the leadership of the party in Owan West LGA aligned to the Legacy PDP also joined the exodus.

It also came to light on Thursday that a prominent youth leader, Frank Monday Jimoh and a former State Organising Secretary of the party, Chief Ehimibai Ohio have also joined in ditching the party.

The exodus was being blamed on the division in the party.

Hon Benjamin Obaseki in a letter to the chairman of the Oredo LGA chapter of the party dated June 12, 2024 explained his resignation thus:


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 in-fighting that has engulfed the party at the state level will consume the party and I do not intend to be consumed alongside.

Accept the assurances of my highest regards.

OBASEKI BENJAMIN reports that the resignation of the brother of the governor is bound to further task Governor Obaseki on the crisis in the state chapter of the PDP.
