A member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) board of trustees, Daisy Danjuma, has restated her endorsement of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State for a second-term.
Naija News reports that Danjuma had endorsed Obaseki, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), during a town hall meeting organised for the governor in Lagos on Sunday.
This endorsement had led to criticism from the state chapter of the party which had demanded the former senator to resign.
The PDP had in a statement by its spokesperson, Chris Nehikhare, stated that the privileges of being a member of the parties BoT should not be abused.
He said the action of Danjuma is a “morale-damper to the hard-working, committed and loyal men, women and youths of Edo PDP”.
Reacting while speaking to newsmen on Monday, Danjuma insisted that she has every right to back and support any candidate of her choice.
“I owe nobody apology for endorsing the second term aspiration of Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo,” she said.
“I have the right to support whoever I choose to. I am a member of the PDP. I have never left the PDP or decamped to any party like others. It is my right to free comment and I have exercised that.”
