H.E Godwin Obaseki, the Executive Governor of Edo State has emerged the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the September gubernatorial election in Edo State.
The Governor was announced after ratification by party delegates following the withdrawal of his main rival, Kenneth Imasuagbon among others.
With this development, Mr Obaseki will face the preferred candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Osagie Ize-Iyamu at the main election.
We gathered from INEC that seven other parties have concluded their primaries and selected candidates for the governorship election, according to the electoral commission.
The PDP primary was supervised by the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, and his Zamfara and Oyo counterparts, Bello Mattawalle and Seyi Makinde.
