Godwin Obaseki Emerges Edo State Gubernatorial Candidate of the APC
Godwin Obaseki has won the Edo State gubernatorial primary of the All Progressives Congress held at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, the state capital.

Mr Odubu was also an aspirant in the race but could not secure the blessing of the governor.
