NEWSMAN, Benin – Edo State Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Tony Aziegbemi, has announced that Governor Godwin Obaseki will be Inaugurated on Thursday in strict compliance with COVID-19 protocols.
The chairman said that the ceremony would be a short and closed one which would be transmitted live and beamed on virtual platforms.
