Governor Godwin Obaseki has emerged as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate unopposed.
Two aspirants, Kenneth Imasuagbon and Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, who challenged Obaseki for the PDP ticket reportedly stepped down at the venue of the primary on Thursday, June 25.
Consequentially, the governor enjoyed a smooth sail to victory as the governor’s senior special adviser on new media, Jack Obinyan, made the disclosure on via his official Twitter handle.
He wrote: “PDP Primaries Edo: In case you haven’t heard, @GovernorObaseki is returned UNOPPOSED, emerges as the flag bearer of the @OfficialPDPNig ahead of September 19, 2020 Gubernatorial Elections”.
