The Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the nullification of Asue Ighodalo as the party’s candidate for the September 21, governorship election by a Federal High court in Abuja.

DAILY POST reports that the state chairman of the party, Anthony Aziegbemi who reacted to the judgment in a statement made available to newsmen in Benin City on Thursday, said the judgment would not affect the candidature of Asue Ighodalo

Aziegbemi, however, urged members and loyal supporters of the party to remain calm and resolute as there is no cause for alarm.

The statement read: “PDP is aware that certain elements who are scared of the soaring popularity of our candidate Dr Asue Ighodalo are going about peddling rumours that the candidature of Dr Asue Ighodalo has been nullified.

“Let it be on record that the candidature of Dr Asue Ighodalo as the flag bearer of the party for the 2024 elections remains intact and that the judgement of the Federal High court in Abuja did not in any way affect the candidature of Dr Asue Ighodalo.

“We urge our teaming loyal supporters to remain calm and resolute as there is no cause for alarm”, he said.
