Hon Patrick Obahiagbon, remember him?
Well, the former House of Representative member may be heading back to the National Assembly as he has emerged All Progressives Congress (APC) Edo South Senatorial candidate at the party primaries held on Thursday in Benin.
While the primaries also returned Ehiozuwa Agbonayima, incumbent House of Representative member representing Ikpoba-Okha and Egor Federal constituency as candidates, the main talking point is the victory, and possible return to the legislature of Obahiagbon.
The grandiloquent politician trended recently after he was pictured kneeling as he begged Edo state APC members to vote for him so he can be the party’s flagbearer in the Edo South Senatorial district election.
Apparently, the stunt paid off as he now has one last hurdle to cross before returning to national limelight.
In the primaries which held in all three senatorial districts, serving House member, Henry Okhuarobo, was returned unopposed as the party’s candidate to represent Ikpoba-Okha constituency in the State House of Assembly.
Mr Christopher Okaeben, incumbent member representing Oredo West was returned unopposed, a serving House of Assembly member, Mr Osaigbovo Iyoha, emerged as the candidate for the House of Representative, Oredo Federal Constituency.
Fingers crossed on Obahiagbon’s possible bow in the Red Chamber…
