Chief Solomon Edebiri, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) aspirant in the June 20 party primaries, said that he had resigned from the party. Edebiri made the disclosure while speaking with newsmen in Obayanton, near Benin on Thursday. He attributed his decision to leave the party to “dishonesty of the party leadership’’ According to him, what happened on June 20 was awful and a complete negation of what democratic tenet is all about.
“I can officially tell you that I have resigned my membership of the PDP and that I have also refused to join either the Sheriff faction or any other party. “My resignation followed the dishonesty of the party leadership who reneged on its pledge to provide a level-playing field for all aspirants at the primaries. “And we had all also pledged to move with the party beyond the primaries, provided the primaries was free, fair and just.
