Four persons have indicated interest to contest for the Chairmanship position of the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The tenure of the incumbent chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, will end in March this year.

Those that have indicated interest are Senator Odion Ugbesia, Tony Azegbemin, State Secretary of the PDP, Chief Omi Imoisili and Fred Okah.

Okah hails from Edo South while others hail from Edo Central.
The Edo PDP leadership had earlier said they uphold non-zoning principle but recent happenings indicated that the Chairmanship position has been zoned to Edo Central.

Many local government chairmen of the PDP have already pledged support for Senator Ugbesia.

With the chairmanship position purportedly zoned to Edo Central, it is becoming clear that the governorship candidate will emerge from Edo South.
