BREAKING: Dennis Idahosa emerges APC Edo governorship candidate

A member of the House of Representatives named Dennis Idahosa has emerged as the All Progressives Congress’s (APC) candidate for governor of Edo in September 2024.

Idahosa was declared the winner of the primary by Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State, the Gubernatorial Primary Election Committee Chairman on Saturday afternoon in Benin, the Edo State capital

Idahosa polled over 40,000 votes to clinch the APC governorship ticket for the Edo September 2024 governorship election.

Before the announcement, there was some drama as suspected thugs disrupted the collation exercise, forcing the election committee to change venue.

The suspected thugs had invaded the venue, and thrown away cameras belonging to journalists, leading to officials and the pressmen scampering for safety.

But Governor Uzodimma explained that there was a mixup about the collation venue. He said the candidate was announced in the right venue.

Some members of the APC in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo State told Channels Television that the election was peaceful

The APC had a few days back cleared twelve aspirants to contest the party’s primary election. But Osagie Ize-Iyamu who flew the APC flag in the 2020 governorship poll withdrew from the race on the eve of the exercise.
