The Secretary of PDP in Edo South Senatorial District said Mr. Dickson Imasogie had on Wednesday 17th January 2024 at the Gubernatorial Aspiration of Barrister Asue Ighodalo claimed to be the leader of Edo South Senatorial District,  which is a total falsehood.

Anthony Peter Ihimi accused Dickson Imasogie of going further to endorse and declare full support of the ‘Senatorial District’  for an aspirant,  Barrister Asue Ighodalo.

He said Dickson Imasogie statement were personal and for himself alone adding that the leadership of the PDP Edo South Senatorial District at this time is vested on Barr. Nosa Ogieva-Okunbor, the State Vice Chairman (South), who alone in consultation with the leadership can make official statements on behalf of the district.

The statement reads in parts: “Our attention has been drawn to remarks made by one Dickson Imasogie on Wednesday 17th January 2024 at the Gubernatorial Aspiration of Barrister Asue Ighodalo in which he claimed to be the leader of Edo South Senatorial District.

 “This is to rightly inform the public that Dickson Imasogie is not the Senatorial leader of the PDP in Edo South, and as such does not, and has never had the constitutional authority and mandate to speak on behalf of the PDP Edo South Senatorial District, its leadership, or its members.

“His statements were personal and for himself alone. The constitution of our party is very clear and unambiguous. The leadership of PDP in Edo South Senatorial District  at this time is vested on Barr. Nosa Ogieva-Okunbor,  the State Vice Chairman (South), who alone in consultation with the leadership can make official statements on behalf of the district.

“We want to use this medium to warn all selfish and self-seeking politicians to desist forthwith from making  statements intended to mislead our teeming supporters and the general public.

“We specifically advise Dickson Imasogie to henceforth stop further impersonation and arrogating to himself the power and authority of senatorial leadership.”

Ihimi noted that Edo South Senatorial District is not opposed to any Gubernatorial Aspirant’s ambition, as it traditionally offers a level playing field to all aspirants seeking the party’s candidacy for elective office.
