A fresh crisis is brewing within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following the recently concluded primary for the Edo state governorship election. Asue Ighodalo emerged as the party’s flagbearer, but the Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, claims to be the authentic winner and has threatened to go to court if the issue is not resolved amicably.

During a visit to the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, Shaibu expressed his surprise at the absence of members of the National Working Committee (NWC) and highlighted the alleged abuse of accreditation, rules, and regulations during the primary.

He stated that if the party does not address the issue and return the certificate of return to him as the authentic winner, he will seek interpretation from the court.

Shaibu emphasized that he came to the party secretariat on the designated day for the issuance of certificates of return, as outlined in the PDP guidelines. He claimed to have won the primary with the support of the authentic delegates and called for the party to follow its rules and guidelines.

The Deputy Governor also pointed out the flaws in the primary process, stating that the committee responsible for conducting it acknowledged the abnormalities. He stressed the importance of correcting these irregularities to protect the foundation of democracy.

Shaibu expressed concern over the absence of NWC members at the party office to receive him, suggesting that this may have been the reason why the certificate was hastily given to another candidate the day before.

He affirmed his commitment to strengthening the foundation of democracy through party politics and reassured party members in Edo state that they would reach the promised land.
