The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has expressed willingness to accept Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki if he decides to join the party.
Naija News reports that Obaseki was on Friday disqualified from seeking re-election by the All Progressives Congress (APC) screening committee.
Different reports have indicated that the Edo State governor is plotting to dump the APC and join another political party to contest the Governorship election.
It was gathered that Governor Obaseki has approached the PDP leadership on the possibility of contesting the election on its platform.
But speaking with NAN in Lagos State, ADP’s National Publicity Secretary, Adelaja Adeoye, said the party will accept Obaseki “with open arms”.
He, however, stated that the Edo State Governor will not be handed an automatic ticket but will slug it out with other aspirants.
Adeoye said: “We will expect the governor to follow laid-down rules and abide by the principles of the party should he decide to join us to seek our ticket.
“We will also expect him to slug it out with governorship aspirants in the party to get the ticket. He will definitely enjoy some privileges as a sitting governor. We will accord him all the respect.”
