The Nigerian political party recently revealed that it was prepared to receive and accept the Edo State governor into its fold if he makes up his mind to quit APC.
According to the National Publicity Secretary of the ADP, Mr. Adelaja Adeoye, ADP operates an open-door policy, and members will gladly admit Obaseki and accord him every respect as a sitting governor.
He, however, added that Obaseki would have to follow the party’s rules and abide by its principles if he joins.
His words, “Yes, if Obaseki decides to join ADP today, the party will welcome him with open arms. The party runs an open-door policy. So we will gladly receive him.”
“He is the sitting governor so we may give him some waivers and will accord him all the respect as the occupier of the number one office in the state.
“However, 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.”
