Former Vice-President and PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar welcomed Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki who joined the party on Friday.
In a congratulatory message on the inclusion of the PDP governor, Atiku Abubakar, said “the PDP is the real party”.
“You came to the PDP when it was reformed to want to implement good governance for the good of Nigerians,” the former vice president said.
Mr Obaseki joined the party only days after he left APC, where he was elected for the first time.
Last week, the APC said Obaseki could not run in the presidential primary because it said there were differences in his school records.
There was a rift between the present Governor of Edo state and the former governor of the state Adams Oshimohle who was suspended as the APC National Chairman.
