Edo Guber 2020: PDP gives Obaseki and Philip Go ahead to Contest

The People Democratic Party (PDP) has granted waiver to Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state, and Philip Shaibu, his deputy, to contest the June 23 primary election.
As a new member of the party, the governor needed to be given clearance to participate in the primary election.
The governor, who resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday, defected to the PDP earlier on Friday.
He had indicated interest to seek reelection on the platform of the APC but he was screened out of the race.
The APC screening committee for the governorship primary had disqualified Obaseki for presenting a “defective” certificate.
