Ganduje heads APC’s campaign for Edo governorship election
Kano State governor of Abdullahi Ganduje, has been appointed by the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) to head the party’s campaign for the Edo governorship election.
The party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, announced in a statement on Thursday, July 2, 2020 that Ganduje was appointed by the Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker committee to chair its National Campaign Council for the September 19 election.
Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma, was appointed deputy chairman of the 49-member committee that also includes state governors, lawmakers, and high-ranking party chieftains as members.
Former APC national chairmen, Adams Oshiomhole and John Odigie-Oyegun, were also included in the committee as members.
The campaign council will be inaugurated on Monday, July 6 at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, according to Nabena.
Osagie Ize-Iyamu won the party’s primary election last month and will hope to defeat incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki, in the September election.
Obaseki won on the APC’s platform in 2016, but dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in June after he was disqualified from participating in the primary election.
A total of 14 candidates will contest in the election, according to a provisional list released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday, June 30.
35-year-old Obhafuoso Paul of the Action Alliance (AA) is the youngest candidate on the list, while Agol Ebun Tracy of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) is the only female candidate.
Other candidates who will also battle for residence in the Edo Government House include Akhigbe Benjamin Ehiabi of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Ibio Lucky Emmanuel of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Lucky Osagie Idehen of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Igbineweka Osamuede of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), and Amos Osalumese Areloegbe of the Action Peoples Party (APP).
Also listed are Osifo Uhun-Ekpenma Isaiah of the Labour Party (LP), Stevie Nash Ozono of the Nigeria People’s Party (NRS), Felix Ikezoe Obayangbon of the SDP, Jones Osagiobare of Young Progressive Party (YPP), and Akhalamhe Amiemenoghena of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).
