The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has restricted the attendance at the flag-off campaign which will hold today, Saturday, for the September 19 Edo State Governorship Election.
A statement by the Edo PDP Campaign Council, Chris Osa Nehikhare, stated that the party would adhere strictly to the directives issued by the Federal Government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for public gatherings following the outbreak of COVID-19.
The Edo PDP Campaign Council for the Governorship Election has limited the number of members and supporters expected at the ceremony which will hold at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City.
The PDP said Governor Godwin Obaseki and his running mate, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu will also move around the respective wards in the nooks and crannies of Edo State to acknowledge the support of the people, with full adherence to the COVID-19 regulations.
The Edo PDP Campaign Council noted that it appreciates the excitement and enthusiasm of our teeming members and supporters to grace the campaign flag-off, but noted that the restriction is in the best interest of the people.
The campaign council also thanked the people of Edo State for their massive support and urged them to remain vigilant as the election draws near.
