Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has emerged the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, for Edo 2020 election.

The governor’s emergence as the Edo PDP governorship candidate for Edo 2020 came after his main rival in the PDP primary election, Ken Imasuagbon, stepped down for the Edo Governor to return unopposed.

Imasuagbon, who had previously vowed not to step down for Obaseki prior to the primary election, announced his withdrawal from the race a few minutes to the commencement of the party Governorship Primaries for the governorship election scheduled for September 2020.

Although Obaseki’s only rival, Imasuagbon has stepped down from the contest where 2,229 delegates will choose the PDP governorship flagbearer, ourworldgist gathers that voting will still go on for affirmation of Obaseki’s candidacy.
