PDP senator denies planning to run for Edo governorship in 2024
Senator representing Edo Central, Clifford Ordia has disclosed that he does not intend to run for the state’s governorship election in 2024.
This was contained issued by Ordia, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member in reaction to reports suggesting that he has plans to run for the position.
The reports allegedly quoted Philip Shaibu, deputy governor of Edo state, as saying so.
The senator via a statement released on Tuesday said some “rumour mongers” are out to pitch him against Shaibu who is his “friend and brother”.
He said Godwin Obaseki, Edo governor, had not even spent up to a year in his second term and some people are already “promoting the politics of 2024”.
“That report is totally false,” chairman of the senate committee on local and foreign debts said.
“You cannot just sit in your house and cook stories or allow yourself to be sponsored by elements who are out to pitch me against our hard-working governor.
”Those who sponsored this report are ignorant and should not be taken seriously.
“Shaibu is a friend and a brother. Unfortunately, those political distractions have failed. The governor and his deputy have not even spent a year into their second term and some people are already promoting the politics of 2024 in the state. We must discourage this.”
