Way out of Edo PDP primaries crisis, by Atiku

Nigeria’s former Vice President, Abubakar Atiku has called on Stakeholders in Peoples Democratic Party to negotiate with aggrieved members and 2024 Edo governorship aspirants at the just concluded party’s primary election.

This followed a litigation that was recently filed by the State Deputy governor, Mr Philip Shaibu, who also stormed the national headquarters of PDP to demand for Certificate of return issue to Dr. Asue Ighodalo, having earlier declared himself winner of the primaries in the State in utter dismay by Nigerians.

In a congratulatory message to Dr Asue Ighodalo, the Candidate of the party in Edo State governorship election billed for September 21, 2024, Atiku ― 2023 Presidential Candidate of PDP, insisted that “The party has made a choice, and it is not in dispute that the choice is a good one”.

Atiku said, “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 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.

“I believe that our candidate has what it takes to bring everyone willing to work for the interest of the PDP under the huge umbrella of our party.

According to him, “The election of a thorough bred technocrat by the PDP as the party’s candidate in Edo State signposts the urgency that the PDP gives to ensuring that the next governor of Edo State is a round peg in a round hole.

“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 upcoming election”, Atiku stressed.
