A United Kingdom-based legal practitioner, Hilton Idahosa, has emerged as the Labour Party’s third factional governorship candidate for Edo state.


Recall that the Labour Party had on Friday conducted its primary and under the leadership of Julius Abure as National Chairman, the party produced a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Olumide Akpata, as the winner of the LP governorship ticket.


However, the factional National Chairman of the party, Lamidi Apapa, announced the conduct of a parallel governorship primary and named Anderson Asemote as the party’s candidate and Monday Mawah as his running mate.


However, in a fresh twist on Sunday, Idahosa announced himself as the LP governorship candidate produced by the Apapa faction.
