Ahead of the Edo 2024 governorship election slated for September 21, at least 30 leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Edo South Senatorial District of the state have endorsed Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama as running mate to the governorship candidate of the party, Senator Monday Okpebholo.

The leaders gave the endorsement at a meeting attended by top former governorship aspirants and other critical stakeholders from Edo South in Abuja.

Among those present at the meeting were Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, General Charles Airhiavbere (rtd), Lucky Imasuen, Senator Matthew Urhoghide, among others.

Ogbeide-Ihama, a former member of the House of Representatives and a formidable politician from Edo South, until recently, was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The popular Edo politician, who controls the structure of the Dan Orbih-led faction of the PDP in Edo South, is moving into the APC with thousands of supporters and PDP party leaders from the senatorial zone.

One of the leaders who attended the meeting, quoted the leaders as saying that “major leaders from Edo South had never been this united. That is why victory has been very elusive for the APC in the senatorial district. We’ve now settled that issue.”
