Court nullifies Edo PDP primary election


Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja has nullified the Peoples Democratic Party primary election that chose Asue Ighodalo as its governorship candidate.

The primary election, held on February 22, 2024, was voided because 378 delegates who were supposed to vote were unlawfully excluded by the PDP.
