He revealed this to journalists in Benin City recently.
According to him, even if some of his close associates have contacted party leaders, Obaseki himself is yet to reach out to him or any member of his executive council.
He added that Obaseki is welcome to PDP anytime he wants and he just has to decide to make the move.
His words, “It is true that some close aides of the governor have reached out to the PDP. The governor, however, is yet to personally reach out to us. Our doors are opened to Governor Obaseki. He is welcome, should he decide to come and join us. The doors of the PDP are wide opened.”
