Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has emerged the flag bearer for the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo state for the September 10 governorship election.
Ize-Iyamu polled 584 votes to defeat two other contestants to the party’s ticket.
The party primaries were held at the Lawn Tennis Court of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, the state capital. The PDP Primary Election Committee was chaired by the Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umehi.
The development comes two days after the emergence of Godwin Obaseki as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress.
