Edo Guber: Ighodalo’s candidature not affected by court’s judgment – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo has said the Federal High Court’s judgment on its primaries does not affect its governorship candidature in the coming governorship election in the state.


The party stated in Benin on Thursday that Dr Asue Ighodalo remained the PDP governorship candidate in Edo.


Dr Tony Aziegbemi, the state PDP chairman, said that Ighodalo’s candidature for the 2024 election remained intact.


“The PDP is aware that certain elements who are scared of the soaring popularity of our candidate are going about peddling rumours that Ighodalo candidature has been nullified.


“Let it be on record that Ighodalo is the PDP flagbearer for the 2024 governorship election in Edo,” he said.


It would be recalled that the Federal High court sitting in Abuja on Thursday, voided the PDP primary election conducted on February 22.


The judgment was voided on grounds that the 378 delegates who were supposed to vote at the primaries were unlawfully excluded by the PDP.
