All is now set for the much talked about gubernatorial elections in Edo state come September 19th, 2020.

The nation's electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, this evening, made available to pressmen, the complete and final list of all 14 candidates and parties eligible to stand for the upcoming elections.

The information was passed across by Festus Okoye, the National Commissioner, and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, who disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.

This occasion according to Okoye, marks the final process in candidate substitution and after now, no party would be permitted to make any changes as this is final.

With this publication, this brings to rest the confusion surrounding the candidacy of the incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki who decamped from the APC to the PDP just a few months to the elections.

Also, the candidacy of his major contender, Pastor Ize- Iyamu has also been confirmed as pundits have wondered if the APC would substitute him due to his lingering N700Million money laundering case.

The eligible governorship candidates and their deputies include:

AA Obhafuoso Paul, E and Sunday Johnbull

ADC Akhigbe B Ehiabhi and Mabel Oboh

ADP Ibio L Emmanuel and Demond Imasuen

APC Osagie Andrew Ize-Iyamu and Audu Ganiyu

APGA Lucky Osagie Idehen and Isah Asekhaimeh

APM Igbineweka Osamuede and Obiyan Christian

APP Amos Osalumese Areloegbe and Afolabi Ogah

LP Osifo Uhun-Ekpenma Isaiah and Omobayo Marvellous

NNPP Agolebun Tracy and Enobhaysobo Jonathan

NRM Stevie Nash Ozono and Osadolor Eghe Festus

PDP Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki and Philip Shaibu

SDP Felix Ikezor Obayangbon and Omion Omonye

YPP Jones Osagiobare and Samson Olukayode Idowu

ZLP Akhalamhe Amiemenoghena and Thompson Osadolor
