Edo PDP Explains Why It Rejected Ighodalo’s Endorsement

The Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has rebuffed the endorsement of one of the governorship aspirants, Dr Asue Ighodalo by a section of party leaders in one of the senatorial districts.

The PDP state secretary, Mr Hilary Otsu in a statement affirmed that such endorsements aimed to question the credibility of a process that has just begun and as such urged party members everywhere to ignore the endorsement.


Mr. Otsu said:

“Our attention has been drawn to a Press Release by a segment of a Senatorial Zone, indicating the endorsement of Dr Asue Ighodalo as a Governorship Candidate. The unwarranted Press Release has already began to raise questions with regards to the credibility of the nomination process which the party has just kickstarted.

“As a result of incessant calls, we are advising all Party members/faithful to disregard totally, this press release/Adoption Statement. The process of nomination for an Edo PDP governorship candidate has started and will be followed through to its completion.

We hereby warn mischief-makers and political traders to desist from any acts that will hinder this process. Our goal is to ensure a smooth and credible process, acceptable to all aspirants.

“Goodluck to all aspirants.”
