According to ADP, it was prepared to receive him with open arms, if the governor takes the decision of dumping the APC for another party.
Recall that the APC screening committee had on Friday disqualified Governor Obaseki from contesting the June 22 governorship primaries of the party over certificates irregularities.
The National Publicity Secretary of the ADP, Mr Adelaja Adeoye who was reacting to the disqualification of Obaseki said that the ADP was operating an open-door policy and that the party would gladly admit Obaseki and accord him every respect as a sitting governor.
Adeoye who noted that the governor would have to follow the party’s rules and abide by its principles should he decide to join the party to contest on its ticket, said, “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.”
