The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, said he will support whoever emerges as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the State Governorship Elections slated for September 21, 2024.
Obaseki, who stated this in Abuja on Thursday during the PDP National Working Committee meeting with the party’s Edo State stakeholders, declared that there is no issue between him and his Deputy Governor, Philip Shuaibu.
The governor said, “There is no issue between me and my deputy and he is here; he wants to contest and we are not asking him to drop his ambition. He is a freeborn of Edo State, and he can contest.
On who he will support for the governorship election, Obaseki said “I will support whoever the party supports.”
In his remarks, the PDP acting national chairman, Umar Damagum, disclosed that all stakeholders in Edo State have agreed to work together.
Damagum said, “We have agreed to work together as one family and we will go further to break the meeting into smaller committees so that at the end of the day, we will come out with a better solution. But in conclusion, Edo is now one family.
Also speaking, one of the aspirants, Asue Ighodalo, said the PDP is set to win the next election in the state.
He stated “The leadership of the party all spoke well and they spoke in line of unity for the party. We are all very happy coming out of that meeting. Our people should expect continuous great governance for our state and continuous good governance from the PDP.”
