The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Campaign Council Chairman, Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the Edo governorship election will be won convincingly by Governor Godwin Obaseki.
The PDP National Campaign chairman who is also the Governor of Rivers State made the assertion at the Grand Finale of the Edo PDP Campaign held at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.
Governor Wike said the convincing evidence on ground has shown the general acceptance of the party by the electorate.
He stated that with the achievements of the last four years, it would be impossible for Governor Obaseki not to be declared the winner.
The Governor however urged Edo people not to take things for granted but turn out in large numbers to vote the candidate of PDP.
“By the grace of God, the election has been won by Governor Obaseki. That does not mean that you’ll go and sleep. Everybody that wants to fight godfatherism should come out to vote.
“Use Edo election to end godfatherism. Make sure you vote and be vigilant too.
“I agree with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that the election will be free and fair. Even the Inspector General of Police has promised that nobody will rig the election. But do not leave the polling units after casting your votes.
“Repeat the Rivers State Model. Let every woman wear jean on election day, cast and defend your votes.
“Follow the votes to the Collation Centres . Do not go until INEC has announced Godwin Obaseki as the winner,” he said.
