The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has noted that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, is capable of leading the party to victory at the Edo State governorship election.
Recall that the party’s National Working Committee on Friday appointed Governor Wike as the Chairman, Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council.
The party also appointed 77 others with 13 PDP governors in the team.
The former Vice president while speaking on the development stated that the combination of Governor Wike and Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State as chairman and vice-chairman respectively will lead the party to victory.
Atiku who took to his Twitter account wrote, “Congratulations, @GovWike on your appointment as Chairman of Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council of our great party, @OfficialPDPNig.”
“I am confident that your leadership, supported by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, the Vice-Chairman, and other members of the PDP #Edo2020 Council will work assiduously for the victory of @GovernorObaseki, and set Edo State on the path of even greater development.”
Governor Godwin Obaseki would be contesting against Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress and other contenders in the September 19 governorship election.
