Expectations are high in Edo Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the choice of Gov Nyeson Wike of Rivers State to head the party’s campaign committee in the state.
Erstwhile Vice President, Atiku Abubakar says he is convinced that the Gov Nyesom Wike-led PDP governorship campaign team will guide the party to victory at the September 19 governorship election in Edo State.
The PDP on Friday appointed Gov Wike and Ahmadu Fintiri, governor of Adamawa, as the chairman and deputy chairman of the campaign council respectively.
The former Vice-President, Abubakar Atiku and 13 other PDP governors are part of the 77-member list.
Atiku made the remarks on his official Twitter handle at the weekend while congratulating the governors.
“Congratulations, Gov Nyesom Wike on your appointment as Chairman of Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council of our great party, PDP.
“I am confident that your leadership, supported by Gov Ahmadu Fintiri, the Vice-Chairman, and other members of the PDP Edo2020 Council will work assiduously for the victory of Governor Obaseki, and set Edo State on the path of even greater development”, he said.
