PDP aspirant, Ikhine, steps down for Obaseki
A frontline governorship aspirant of Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State, Gideon Ikhine, has stepped down from the race for Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Ikhine announced his decision to step down for the governor on Monday at a ceremony in Benin.
Obaseki, state party chairman , Dr Tony Aziegbemi, and other party leaders across the state were in attendance.
Announcing the decision, the aspirant said there was no progress without a sacrifice, adding that the governor’s defection to the party was God’s great answer to the party and his aspiration.
He noted that two persons could have the same vision but the means of approaching them different.
Ikhine stressed that he was not actually stepping down, but ” stepping behind the man who would lead the party to glory come Sept. 19″.
