Prince Kassim Afegbua, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Commissioner for Information in Edo state, has said he has no need to reconcile with Governor Godwin Obaseki on his purported suspension from the party.

He said: “There is nothing to reconcile with the state Governor. I am older than him at the birthday party. He best came because he wished a platform to contest the election. After his 2d time period inauguration, are you able to call the PDP individuals in his management, five months after?
“Yes, I was purportedly suspended for one month with the aid of my ward executives which terminated at the 2nd of September earlier than the election of 19th. So there is actually not anything to treasure about suspension or no suspension”.
“I am not an worker of the PDP just like the countrywide executives who are plundering the resources of the birthday celebration for self-aggrandizement. The gift leadership of the birthday celebration are steadily killing the celebration and weakening its shape on a daily basis. What is fundamental about everyone is the validity of the single vote narrative. I am entitled to 1 vote and those of my fans who accept as true with in me.
“Those who campaigned in opposition to my individual saying I become a television politician, had been shell taken aback that we added Okpella to the APC. That, to me, is enough meals for notion. We have been able to make a point that if leaders don’t perform, the people might reply by using the thumbs.
On the claim by some PDP contributors that he lacks the right to comment on the birthday party on account that he has left for the APC, Afegbua stated.
“I still continue to be a PDP member regardless of my assist for the APC candidate within the last election. I have no regret about my position, in fact, given any other possibility, I will nonetheless support the APC candidate, Pastor Ize-Iyamu. For me, it isn’t all approximately political celebration affiliation, but the individuals standing for election.
“The PDP leadership who have been branded tax creditors provoked my selection to guide the APC candidate, coupled with other factors.No one is a slave to any birthday party. We are all contributors to the boom of the celebration and to surrender all of the structures to at least one individual just due to the fact he has country budget to throw around, become to me, undemocratic. But that is a dialogue for records”.
