Edo state Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); his main challenger, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole are in a peace meeting convened by Oba of Benin.
It was gathered that Omo ‘N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare 11, convened the meeting to commit the main political gladiators in the September 19 governorship election to peace.
It was also learnt other major political actors in the state are in the palace for the meeting.
The election according to political analysts is majorly between PDP’s Godwin Obaseki and APC’s Ize-Iyamu.
