Edo: ‘Those Who Borrowed Our Party Can’t Chase Out Genuine Members’ – Sowunmi Slams Obaseki

Segun Sowunmi

Otunba Segun Sowunmi, a prominent member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar’s 2019 Presidential Campaign, strongly criticized the recent developments within the Edo State chapter of the party.

Sowunmi expressed his concern that Governor Godwin Obaseki, who was given the party platform, is causing genuine members to be driven out.

During an interview with journalists, Sowunmi lamented that Obaseki’s membership has disrupted the strong 25-year legacy of the PDP in Edo.

He pointed out that the party has experienced a decline in membership and elective positions under Obaseki’s leadership.

Therefore, Sowunmi emphasized the importance of Obaseki restoring the PDP to its authentic stakeholders before further harm is inflicted upon the party.

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 Yahya 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 problem with Oshiomhole ran to us, you treated our people like sh*t and now they must become extinct for you? Where is that done?”
