BREAKING: PDP postpones Edo Governorship Primaries over Obaseki

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has postponed its governorship primaries earlier slated for Monday, June 22 to Tuesday, June 23, 2020.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, made this known via his official Twitter handle, @officialKolaO on Thursday.

Ologbondiyan added that the party will issue a formal statement on the development very soon.

Standard News reports that the party shifted the election in order to allow Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, who just resigned from the All Progressives Congres (APC), to take part in the exercise.

Governor Obaseki is expected to obtain his nomination form today and announce his defection to the PDP on Friday, having resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday.

The statement by Ologbondiyan enjoined all the party’s governorship aspirants, critical stakeholders, party faithful, and supporters in Edo state, to adjust to the new date.

“Our party wishes to remind our members that all activities shall be in accordance with the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC)’s guidelines on COVID -19, as it concerns social/physical distancing at public gatherings,” Ologbondiyan said.
