The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has promised to comply with COVID-19 protocols at the inauguration of Edo state Governor Godwin Obaseki on Thursday.
The State Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Tony Aziegbemi who made this known in Benin said the party was constrained by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the mood of the state and the nation occasioned by the recent #EndSARS protests.
Dr. Aziegbemi noted that the ceremony would be a short and closed one which would be transmitted live and beamed on virtual platforms.
In his words: “There will also be simultaneous inauguration reception parties for party members and faithful in all local government areas headquarters hosted by the chairmen”.
“Consequently, there is no need to travel from your domain to the swearing-in ceremony when you can watch it live and party with your fellow constituents,” he said.
Governor Obaseki won the Sept. 19 Governorship Election for his second term by defeating his closest opponent, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
