Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Campaign Council for Edo Governorship Election, yesterday, met in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on how to defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming election.
The Chairman of the council and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, said the party was confident of victory for Gov. Godwin Obaseki. Gov. Wike who presided over the meeting, said Edo electorate was desirous to consolidate the democratic gains the various elective representatives of the party had provided for it.
Those who attended the meeting were Governors Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri (Adamawa) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo), members of the campaign council, chairmen and secretaries of all sub-committees of Edo 2020. Briefing newsmen after the meeting, Gov. Fintiri said the meeting adopted the best strategies to retain “what rightly belongs to PDP”.
After getting this update, Nigerians didn't take too long to share their reactions on their various social media platforms. Check them out below:
Only a strong and united team like PDP can take them down. Edo is for PDP.
Very simple. Just play all the old videos of what Oshiomole said about Ize-Iyamu and you'll be fine.
Obaseki’s approval rating is high in Edo state. PDP must count themselves lucky to have him flying their flag. Victory for Obaseki and Philip is looking like a stroll in the park.
Until Nigerians, especially the youths start changing their value system, stop trying to reward evil doers & eschew the myopia of tribalism and other such bigotry, we’ll continue to play with mediocrity.
What we have today in Edo state is a clear choice against the evil of godfatherism in democracy. A self-confessed cultist, popularly labeled a thief that cannot be trusted with state resources by his own past party chairman, Oshiomole, currently facing fraud charges & prosecution by the EFCC and being campaigned for by another thief and bribe taker caught on tape ganduje. In saner societies, an Ize-Iyamu will step down from any reasonable position held & not be contesting to be governor.
PDP - Power to the people. Help us win back the only south-south state remaining. Let the stronghold of power come back to PDP bit by bit.
Please let them do it. It's for the good of Nigerians.
Let's kill Godfatherism. I am very happy for the antagonistic response of Edo citizens to this devilish Godfatherism nonsense.
Let it remain where it is wanted and leave South-South alone because "Edo isn't Lagos".
