What could be termed as respite is what is currently being experienced in the camp of the National Vice Chairman, South-South of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as the candidates who emerged from the primary conducted by his faction in the Edo State chapter of the party have been submitted to the Independent Nation Electoral Commission, INEC.
According to a report by Metrowatch Nigeria, Architect Mike Onolememen, Hon Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama and Hon. Paschal Ugbome top the list of names submitted as the senatorial candidates for Edo central, Edo South, and Edo North respectively.
An administrative staff of INEC in Abuja, confirmed that the list has been forwarded to INEC as ordered by the court.
Showing the receipt of acknowledgment as a proof, she said “Look, we have obeyed the court`s order instructing us to submit the names of those who emerged as our candidates from the primaries monitored by INEC, and these are the names”.
Some other names listed as sighted by our reporter in Abuja, are Mrs. Lucy Omagbon, Mr. Lewis Osobase, Mr. Felix Akhbue, Mr. Lawrence Ogieva, Mr. Nosa Adams, and all others who are members of the Edo Legacy PDP.
