INEC releases list of party candidates for Edo election

Preparation is ongoing for the forthcoming election in Edo as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) released the list of party candidates vying for the seat of Edo government house.

The electoral body, in a tweet on Tuesday, June 30, recognised both Osagie Ize-Iyamu and Governor Godwin Obaseki as the flagbearers of their respective parties. POLITICS360 recalls that after a tough race highlighted by lawsuits and counter-lawsuits, Governor Obaseki clinched the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Pastor Ize-Iyamu, on the other hands, rode to victory as he won the All Progressive Congress (APC) primary election in style after Obaseki’s exit from the party. Reeling out the names of the party flagbearers, INEC announced Philips Shaibu as the running mate of the Edo governor and Audu Abudu Ganyu as Ize-Yamu’s running mate. The electoral commission also announced that 14 political parties will be vying for the soul of Edo state come September.
