PDP Cancels Edo Delegate Election Amidst Frustration
The National committee appointed by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) to conduct the ward delegate election in Edo led by Enugu State Governor Peter Mbah has nullified the election results coming from Etsako Central Local Government Area of the state.

Edo State Chairman of the PDP, Mr. Tony Aziegbemi, stated that the decision was reached by the committee after ascertaining the report that the five committee members sent to conduct the election in Etsako Central Local Government Area were kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

Edo State PDP Ward Congress election was conducted to select delegates who will vote to determine the flagbearer of the party in the governorship primary slated for February 22nd, 2024 ahead of the state governorship election.

Mr. Aziegbemi said, “We had one ugly incident during the Sunday ward delegates congress in the state. Eight electoral officials deployed to Etsako Central local government area were abducted by gunmen at Jattu in Etsako West local government area.

“Despite the incident, the exercise went on smoothly in the other 17 local government areas.

“Meanwhile, the ward delegates congress committee led by the Governor of Enugu State, Barrister Peter Mbah, has canceled the result of the ward congress in Etsako central local government as a result of the kidnapping incident.

“In their own wisdom, they decided to cancel the outcome because the result in the locality will not affect the result of the other 17 local governments.”

The kidnapped delegate officers are yet to be released by their kidnappers as Governor Godwin Obaseki of the State took the case to the Police Command in the State.
