The Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has revealed that it will field a young governorship candidate in the forthcoming election in the state.
The Chairman of the party, Dan Orbih, revealed this development during a rally in Etsako Central Local Government Area of the state.
Orbih noted the candidate will be from the young and intelligent party members who have proven their worth, both in characters and their chosen fields of endeavours.
Recall that the former governorship of the party, Osagie Ize-Iyamu and many others recently defected to All Progressives Congress
He noted that it is important for the party to give the young ones the opportunity to rule the state.
“Our governorship aspirants are young crop of people. I can tell you that in Edo 2020 election, PDP will produce a young governorship candidate”
Ahead of the governorship election in the state, he charged the electorate to vote for the right candidate by choosing the candidate of the party “because of the abysmal failure of the APC-led government in the state”.
“PDP remains the only organised party in Nigeria that knows how to resolve its crisis.”
“We are tired of the pains and disappointment we have found ourselves in the APC-led government in Edo.”
“I pray for peace and unity in the forthcoming election. I want to assure you that this election will not be business as usual”.
