Chairman, Edo PDP Campaign Council, Chief Dan Orbih, who spoke to journalists in Benin City, the Edo State capital, said the show of solidarity and support was wonderful and inspiring.
According to him, “On behalf of the Executive Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu, and the members of the Edo State PDP Campaign Council, I express our gratitude to the good people of Edo North Senatorial District for the wonderful support they showed when we visited the various wards in Edo North.
“We went round the 64 wards in Edo North and it was wonderful. The support was wonderful. I now see why people are committed to the re-election of the governor.”
Chief Orbih added: “At the places we visited, they came out to let the governor know that they appreciate all the good things he has done for them and also told him some of the things he should do in his second term. To that extent, I think the tour was a huge success. We look forward to visiting the remaining wards in the remaining senatorial districts in the state.”
Recall that the Governor and the campaign council commenced the ward-to-ward campaign that would span the 192 wards in the state, a strategy that is anchored on the governor’s philosophy that politics must be local and connected to the most basic unit of political formation, such as wards, to ensure that the people truly feel the benefits of democracy.
