Bight Newspaper understands the flag was handed over to Okpebholo and the deputy governorship candidate of the APC, Dennis Idahosa at the Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja.

Idahosa was unveiled at a meeting on Sunday night attended by the APC National Chairman, Ganduje, former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, Okpebholo himself and a few other party chieftains.

Recall that Idahosa was one of the aspirants who contested the APC ticket for Edo governorship election during the party primaries but lost the ticket as the Okpebholo eventually emerged as the party’s flag bearer for the November 21, 2024 election.

With his emergence as the deputy governorship candidate, Idahosa is expected to withdraw his law suit against the party regarding the outcome of the Edo primary elections.
