The Peoples Democratic Party’s National Working Committee has appointed Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike as Chairman, Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council.
The party also appointed Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, as the deputy chairman of the council.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, announced this on Friday.
“@OfficialPDPNig NWC appoints @GovWike as Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council Chairman. The deputy chairman is Adamawa State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Fintiri,” he disclosed via Twitter.
The party’s candidate, Governor Godwin Obaseki, would face Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress as well as other contenders in the September 19 governorship election in the state.
“With the people of Edo State on the side of Governor Obaseki and the PDP, the coast is already clear and any attempt by anybody to subvert the will of the people will surely be met very stiff resistance,” Ologbondiyan noted.
