Edo guber: Gov. Obaseki’s brother, Benjamin, resigns from PDP

A significant member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Hon. Benjamin Obaseki, has resigned his membership of the party.

Benjamin, a brother of Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki, said his resignation was from the PDP was with immediate effect.

He cited internal turmoil and a disconnect between the party leadership and its members as some of the reasons for leaving the party.

In a resignation letter to the Oredo local government chairman of the party, Benjamin highlighted the crumbling state of the PDP under its current leadership.

He said, “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.”

He lashed out at the top echelon, including his own brother, the governor.

“It is a pity that the infighting that has engulfed the party at the state level will consume the party, and I do not intend to be consumed alongside,” he said.

He warned that the party was on the brink of self-destruction as he expressed deep regrets over his decision to leave the party he helped build from scratch.

Read him: “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.”
