By SINL Reporter

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) has granted waiver to Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki to contest the Edo governorship election primary.

The action of the NWC is pursuant to  Section 29(2)(b) of the PDP constitution and in exercise of the powers of the National Executive Committee (NEC) under Section (50)(3)(b) of the PDP constitution.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan made the disclosure in a statement on Friday.

The statement noted that the NWC in exercise of its powers has ratified the application for waiver by the ward, local government and state executives of the party in Edo state and accordingly granted waiver to Governor Godwin Obaseki to enable him contest the gubernatorial primary of the PDP.

Similarly, the NWC has further shifted the Edo state governorship primary from an earlier slated date of Tuesday, June 23 to a new date of Thursday June 25, 2020.

“The shift is again predicated on exigencies of party activities” Ologbondiyan added.
