Hon. Fred Agbedi has won the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary for the Ekeremor/Sagbama Federal Constituency to fly the flag of the party in the 2023 general elections.
The educationist and politician from Nigeria’s oil-rich south-south state of Bayelsa was one of several others that won in their various constituencies. The other winners include Engr. Rodney Ambaiowei – Southern Ijaw; Hon. Oforji Oboku, Yenagoa/Kolokuma-Opokuma; Hon. Ebinyo Turner, Ogbia; and Hon (Mrs) Marie Ebikake, Nembe-Brass.
Agbedi is a ranking member of the Federal House of Representatives and represents the Sagbama/Ekeremor Federal Constituency of Bayelsa State in the 9th Assembly.
He was first elected to the green chamber in the third republic in 1992, but spent only a year in the parliament when the third republic was aborted and the parliament dissolved.
