Edo 2020: Obaseki speaks after undergoing screening for PDP governorship ticket

The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki on Saturday was screened at the headquarters of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja.

Obaseki is seeking to secure the party’s ticket to contest the September 19 governorship election.

The governor speaking to reporters after he was screened commended the party for the exercise.

He said: “The screening exercise was fair and professional; I saw objectivity in it.

“My hope and purpose for the PDP is to have a united and very strong party.

“Party primary should not be divisive because we, as a party, are focused on the same objective, but because we are individuals, our approaches may be different.

“So, party primary, in my view, should not be acrimonious and destructive. There are common grounds, common interests and I am very hopeful that I will get it even as there are quite a number of delegates for the exercise.”

Speaking on his credentials, Obaseki said: “I presented all my certificates, my secondary school, higher school, university and my National Youth Service certificate, so that they can look at them and see if there are inconsistencies.

“You can ask the screening committee if there are any inconsistencies in any of them.”
