The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has rejected the call by Governor Godwin Obaseki for opposition political parties to join his administration to build and develop the state.
The party said that its stand that Governor Obaseki is not the right person to govern the state has not changed.
Governor Obaseki at a media briefing had ruled out offering political appointment to members of opposition political parties but said he was ready to work with them to develop the state.
Obaseki said he was ready to give them the opportunity to build and develop the state and make it the economic hub of the nation.
But State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Dan Orbih, who was reacting to Governor Obaseki’s comments said the PDP still has a case in court challenging the qualifications of Godwin Obaseki to contest the election.
Chief Orbih stated that the PDP achieved a lot for the people during the tenure of Adams Oshiomhole and assured that the party would not relent to be the voice of the people.
“That matter was a pre-election matter. As at the time of the election, APC did not have a qualified candidate for the election.
“We still believe that Obaseki is not the fit and proper person to occupy that office. We are not in any way interested in his appointment.
“We are interested in the appointment from God and not from Godwin Obaseki. We don’t believe in Obaseki and whatever he has to offer.”
“We are a political party. We have achieved so much for the people of this state without a lot of people realizing it. If not for the PDP, Adams would have done enough damage before he left office. We are not going to relent. We will continue to be the voice of the people and advance the course of our party.”
