Edo Guber: Atiku Begs Shaibu, Others To Support Ighodalo As PDP Candidate


Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

Amid threats by Hon. Philip Shuaibu, Edo State deputy governor, to institute legal action against the emergency of Asue Ighodalo as the Peoples’ Democratic Party’s (PDP) governorship candidate in the state, aggrieved governorship aspirants to the state’s top job, have been urged to sheath their swords and support him as the party’s candidate.

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, 2023 PDP presidential candidate, who made the appeal, noted that the election of a thoroughbred technocrat by the PDP as the party’s candidate in Edo State signposted the urgency that the party gave to ensuring that the next governor of Edo State was a round peg in a round hole.

Posted Atiku on X: “The PDP leadership and members in Edo State must be congratulated also, for an amazing primary election that produced the quality of candidate to fly the flag of our party in the up-coming election.

“The party has made a choice, and it is not in dispute that the choice is a good one. It is, therefore, on this note that I plead with all other aspirants and aggrieved stakeholders to reconcile and negotiate to make sure that Edo remains a PDP state.

“Dr Asue Ighodalo, apart from being a brilliant mind, in whose hands the affairs of Edo State will steer on stable waters, is also a fine gentleman”.
