Sowunmi blames Obaseki for PDP’s failed Presidential outing in Edo State



…Calls for party to reclaim structure from Governor

Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Chieftain and Atiku Abubakar 2019 Presidential Campaign Spokesman, Segun Sowunmi has blamed Governor Godwin Obaseki for the party’s failed Presidential outing in Edo State during the 2023 General elections.

Speaking in an interview with journalists he said that Obaseki’s membership of the party has upturned the 25-year robust legacy of the party in Edo State. Sowunmi said that it was saddening that the party has contracted in membership and elective positions under Obaseki’s tutelage.

He said that it was as such important for the governor to return the PDP to the genuine stakeholders in Edo State before further harm is done.

He said, “The PDP must take back its party in Edo, those who came to borrow our platform cannot chase away those who have laboured and sacrificed for PDP. I queried the nonsense when they wanted to use our platform to rescue them then wondered if the ideological underpinning of ours and our attitude was sane with theirs. Time again I have been proven right. Will the landlords now become onlookers on their property?

“We gave him the responsibility to manage the membership registration. Compare what he did to what Yahaya Bello did for APC. A significant support Labour got in Edo during the presidential elections was due to the duplicitous game of Obaseki. We lent you our platform, now we want it back QED!”

“Suddenly PDP, a legacy of 25 solid years, will now become a party that stands for nothing. Show me evidence of how Obaseki cares for our party or our members. Extremely Annoying. I have no dog in the fight but come on. You had a problem with Oshiomole, ran to us, you treated our people like sh*t and now they must become extinct for you? Where is that done?”
