Gov Godwin Obaseki has stated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will determine their flagbearer in the 2024 gubernatorial polls.

He made this known when his deputy, Philip Shaibu, announced his intention to run for office on Monday morning.

Obaseki, who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP after a fallout with his predecessor Adams Oshiomhole, now says the country’s main opposition party would decide his deputy’s fate.

“The party will decide and also members of the party will decide who will be the flag bearer of the party in the forthcoming governorship election,” Obaseki, 66, said after a closed-door meeting with his Bauchi counterpart Bala Mohammed and a former Akwa-Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel.

“The relationship as you know, has been cordial. He (Philip) wants to run for the office I currently occupy and he is free to. I think as a Nigerian, he has the constitutional right to run, nobody can or should stop him.”

But when asked if he would support Shaibu, he said: “I’m only one out of millions of our party members in Edo state. I don’t think my vote alone will determine whether he becomes the party’s flag bearer.”
