Governor Godwin Obaseki has emerged the governorship candidate for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State.

The governor emerged on Thursday, June 25 after his closest rival Ken Imasaugbon stepped down from the race minutes into the primary election.

Imasaugbon had earlier said he would not step down for the governor because the party had “concluded ward and local government congress before Obaseki came”.

Obaseki had defected to the PDP from the All Progressives Congress after his disqualification by the party over alleged anti-party activities.
