Edo Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu had threatened to go to court to challenge the emergency of Ighodalo as the PDP’s governorship candidate.

Atiku, in  a long tweet on Saturday said the election of a thorough bred technocrat by the PDP as the party’s candidate in Edo State signposted the urgency that the PDP gives to ensuring that the next governor of Edo State is a round peg in a round hole.
