Edo 2024: See True Position of Court On Ighodalo’s Candidacy

In response to the recent surge of misinformation regarding the candidature of Dr. Asue Ighodalo, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) flag bearer for the Edo Governorship 2024 elections, Team Asue Media Organisation (TAMO) has issued a clarifying statement.

TAMO condemned the false claims suggesting that Dr. Ighodalo’s candidature had been nullified, attributing these rumors to the actions of detractors threatened by his growing popularity.

The organization emphasized that Dr. Ighodalo’s candidacy remains valid and unaffected by the recent Federal High Court judgment in Abuja. They clarified that the court do not have the jurisdiction to rule on the legitimacy of the primaries that elected Dr. Ighodalo, and thus, his position as the PDP’s candidate is secure.

Highlighting the legal provisions under Section 8414, TAMO pointed out that only participants in the primaries have the right to challenge the outcome, noting that all eligible aspirants who contested the primaries and raised objections have failed in their attempts.

The statement reads in part;

“It is crucial to understand that under Section 8414, only an aspirant who participated in the primaries has the locus to challenge its outcome. All such “eligible” aspirants who contested the primaries and raised objections have already failed in their bids. Therefore, any claims suggesting otherwise are not only false but mischievously designed to undermine the democratic process and the credibility of our candidate.”

TAMO called on supporters to stay calm and assured them that the full written judgment, expected within 24 hours, will confirm the truth of their statements. The PDP remains united and committed to Dr. Ighodalo’s leadership and vision, undeterred by these attempts to undermine their campaign.
