Edo 2024: Ighodalo remains PDP candidate, says state chairman

The chairman of the Edo State chapter, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Tony Aziegbemi, has said that the ruling of the Federal High Court, which nullified the primary election that produced Asue Ighodalo as its candidate, will not in any way affect Ighodalo’s candidature in the forthcoming gubernatorial election, asserting that he (Ighodalo) remains the party’s flag bearer.

On Thursday, July 4, a Federal High Court in Abuja, nullified the PDP governorship primaries in Edo State.

The court presided over by Justice Iyang Ekwo declared the primary election void because it unlawfully excluded 378 delegates who were supposed to vote at the poll.

However, a statement by the PDP Chairman, Edo State Chapter, Tony Aziegbemi, on Thursday, July 4, reads:  “The #OfficialPDPNig is aware that certain elements who are scared of the soaring popularity of our candidate Dr Asue Ighodalo #Aighodalo are going about peddling rumours that the candidature of Dr Asue Ighodalo has been nullified.

“Let it be on record that the candidature of Dr Asue Ighodalo as the flag bearer of the party for the 2024 elections remains intact and that the judgement of the Federal High court in Abuja did not in any way affect the candidature of Dr Asue Ighodalo

“We urge our teaming loyal supporters to remain calm and resolute as there is no cause for alarm.”
