Ahead of the Edo governorship election in 2024, the National Chairman of the Labour Party, Barr Julius Abure has said that the party’s flagbearer will only emerge from votes of delegates in the primary election.
Abure, who is on a thank-you tour to Edo State Labour Party leaders and the leadership of various support groups, disclosed this while briefing journalists in the State.
According to him, the Labour Party is prepared to demonstrate internal democracy by allowing delegates to decide who becomes
the party’s flagbearer in the 2024 governorship election.
“We are going to look at the pedigree, capacity and antecedents of aspirants to be sure we don’t present the wrong candidate to Edo People.
“Deep pocket will not determine our choice of governorship candidate because Edo people believed in us, that was why we were given 79% votes at the Presidential election.
