Former vice-presidential candidate, Peter Obi, says he is confident that the appointment of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, as chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council will guarantee Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, a second tenure.

Mr Obi stated this in a tweet on Sunday and also congratulated Mr Wike.

“Congratulations, Your Excellency Gov Nyesom Wike on your appointment as chairman of @OfficialPDPNig Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council. I am confident that your leadership in conjunction with the outstanding team will assure victory for our great party,” he wrote.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar had on Saturday via Twitter congratulated Wike and expressed confidence that the council would work “assiduously for the victory of @GovernorObaseki, and set Edo State on the path of even greater development”.

Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, was appointed as the deputy chairman of the council.
