Idahosa, 43, Emerges Edo APC Governorship Candidate

Uzodimma said idahosa got 40,453 votes followed by Gideon Ikhime with 700 votes.

In a turn of events, Dennis Idahosa, a member of the house of representatives, has been elected as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Edo governorship election.

On Saturday, Hope Uzodimma, governor of Imo, who is also the chairman of the Edo gubernatorial primary election committee, announced Idahosa as the winner of the election that took place in Benin City, the state capital.

Uzodinma said 43-year-old Idahosa polled 40,483 votes to defeat other contestants and will now fly the party’s flag in the September 2024 governorship poll.

Meanwhile, a few hours to the election, Lucky Imasuen and Ernest Afolabi withdrew from the governorship primary over the party’s decision to zone the ticket to the central senatorial district of the state.
