An aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in the forthcoming governorship election in Edo State, Matthew Iduoriyekemwen, has rejected the outcome of the party’s primary, which produced Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as its candidate.
He also pledged his loyalty to the Ali Modu Sheriff leadership of the party and added that he would participate in the primary election of the group scheduled for June 28.
Ize-Iyamu had been declared the winner of the exercise by the committee chaired by the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, with a total of 584 votes to defeat his two other opponents, Iduoriyekemwen and Solomon Edebiri, who got 91 and 38 votes, respectively.
But the former Majority Leader in the state House of Assembly, who spoke on Friday evening in Benin, the state capital, described the primary election as a “comedy” which was “clinically manipulated” to favour a preferred candidate of the state leadership of the party.
