Senator Daisy Danjuma is in hot soup as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has disowned her for endorsing Governor Godwin Obaseki for the second term in office.
PDP’s spokesman, Chris Nehikhare, said;
“Our attention has been drawn to a statement purportedly made by Senator Daisy Ehanire-Danjuma, a member of our great party PDP and Board of Trustees (BoT) when she attended a town hall meeting hosted by Governor Obaseki in Lagos over the weekend.”
“The comments, discussions and purported endorsements credited to her are her private thoughts and do not reflect the thoughts of Edo PDP.”
“Edo PDP hereby disassociates itself from all that transpired between Senator Daisy Ehanire-Danjuma and the Governor. It is abnormal and not politically savvy for party leaders to endorse aspirants of another party other than the candidate of their party.”
“Being a member of the BoT confers some rights and privileges. It’s an abuse of such rights and privileges to openly and publicly endorse a candidate of another party. This action calls for your resignation from such exalted position!”
“The statement of endorsement is a morale-damper to the hard-working, committed and loyal men, women and youths of Edo PDP.”
“At the appropriate time in accordance with our party’s constitution, a credible PDP candidate will be nominated to contest the Edo State 2020 Governorship election to liberate the state from political arrogance, political rascality, poverty, insecurity, unemployment and unimaginable colossal debts.”
