Edo 2020: PDP Commends Obaseki Over Approval To Use Stadium For Primaries

As political parties in Edo State count down to their respective primaries, the state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has been granted approval by the state governor to use of the newly reconstructed Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia stadium as venue of the exercise. The party is adopting indirect mode of primary in the selection of its candidate.

The party commended the state governor for the approval. The governor had insisted that no party should hold any political gathering outside the stadium in order to check the spread of coronavirus disease.
