In a significant event earlier today, Senator Monday Okpebholo, the APC’s candidate for the Edo 2024 gubernatorial elections, received the party’s flag from President Bola Tinubu at the presidential villa.

Among the distinguished attendees was Senator Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, representing Edo North in the National Assembly. He was seen alongside Senator Mathew Urhoghide, both smiling.

With this presidential endorsement, the APC is poised to make a formidable entrance into the political arena, as they say, “WITH ITS FULL CHEST.”

In the same vein, the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday, March 18, in Abuja also unveiled the representative of Ovia constituency of Edo State in the House of Representatives, Dennis Idahosa, as the running mate to APC’s governorship candidate in Edo for the September 21 election, Senator Monday Okpebholo.

A senior aide to Idahosa in a phone chat confirmed that his boss, a gubernatorial aspirant of the APC in the February 22, 2024 direct primary election, had consented to become the party’s deputy gubernatorial candidate.

He also disclosed that Idahosa would withdraw his lawsuit concerning the contentious shadow poll, owing to the intervention of prominent Nigerians.

A former representative of Oredo constituency in the House of Representatives on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, who had concluded arrangements to defect to APC, was earlier tipped to be Okpebholo’s running mate, but he was later dropped for strategic reason.

Ogbeide-Ihama, an ex-governorship aspirant of PDP in Edo, and an iconic member of Chief Dan Orbih-led Legacy Coalition of PDP, had made up his mind to quit PDP with his teeming supporters, for Governor Godwin Obaseki-backed Asue Ighodalo to lose the governorship poll.

Edo’s acting Chairman of APC, Jarret Tenebe had earlier disclosed that arrangements had been concluded to unveil the party’s deputy governorship candidate, but he declined to mention the name of the top politician.

It will be the youngest ticket ever in the history of Edo State, and that is what we will use to defeat the other parties, he concluded.
