AHEAD of the September 21 governorship election, the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, weekend, inaugurated a 363-member campaign council where Governor Godwin Obaseki described the Legacy Group as a sheep without shepherd.
The Legacy Group of the PDP in Edo is headed by National Vice Chairman, South-South, Dan Orbih.

Obaseki also accused members of the group of being sponsored by the opposition and vowed that the PDP would win the election without them because the PDP has the best candidate and programmes for the people of Edo State.
Obaseki said: “PDP is one. Those who are fighting PDP have collected money from the other parties, and they want to sell out. Join me so that we can flush them out of our party. Because we are not going to allow anybody to divide us, we are one party, one indivisible party in Edo State.

“The money they have collected is enough, let them go and enjoy it; let them go and spend it outside. We don’t have anything to fear. I will fight them if they try us; we will fight them if they try us. They know us, we never fight and lose, let them come and try. They have collected money, let them stay outside with their money, and not disturb us because this election is ours and we are going to win by the grace of God.”
Obaseki, who declared that the opposition has no chance in Edo, boasted that the PDP had put together hardworking campaign council members who, according to him, were going to deliver 80 per cent of the total votes to the party.

“By the grace of God, this campaign council will deliver nothing less than 80 per cent of our votes. Everybody sees what is happening in Nigeria today. You can see the suffering in the land. You can see the struggle in Edo but we pulled Edo out of that problem. So, our campaign is going to be based on the hope we will give our citizens in Edo State,” he said
He noted that the structure of the campaign council was rooted in all the 192 wards across the state, adding that every organ of the party was captured.
Earlier, the State Chairman of the PDP, Dr. Tony Aziegbemi, disclosed that the campaign council comprised 363 members, excluding the women and youth wings.

In his speech, Director-General of the state campaign council, Matthew Iduoriyekenmwen, thanked the governor and PDP faithful for the opportunity to serve the party and promised to lead the party to victory in September.
The PDP governorship candidate, Dr. Asue Ighodalo, who thanked party faithful and leaders for the confidence reposed in him, said Obaseki had laid a functional foundation in every sector that he would build upon.
