The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Edo State, Senator Yisa Braimoh, has issued a stern warning to anyone who dumps the party.
He stated that the era of allowing people to return and pick up tickets as contestants was over.
Braimoh made the statement on Saturday at Afuze, while addressing party supporters from across Owan East Local Government Area of the state.
“My message to you, my people, is that this is the year of glory for PDP. By the special grace of God, we are going to Osadebe House, come December 2020. The election coming in August this year is a walkover for us," he said during a continuation of the Edo North PDP leaders tour.
The former senator, who represented Edo North in the Red Chamber, described 2020 as a year of glory during which PDP will regain power in the state.
He further disclosed that the leadership of the party has resolved not to give a ticket to anyone who had previously dumped the party but later returns with the primary aim of contesting on its platform.
“Nobody will just come to our party and pick up ticket as contestant. No decampee (sic) will come and we make him candidate tomorrow. That era is over," he said.
