Edo 2020: Wike right choice to lead Obaseki’s campaign says Atiku

The choice of the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to lead the campaign for its candidate in the September 19 Edo state governorship election, Gov. Godwin Obaseki, has been commended by former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar.

Applauding the appointment of Wike and his Adamawa state counterpart, Ahmadu Fintiri as chairman and deputy
chairman of the Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council of the PDP, Atiku said the party has put the campaign in credible hands.

Reacting to the appointments in a statement in Abuja by his media office, the former Vice President said that “the PDP couldn’t have made a better choice because Governor Wike is an outstanding and dedicated party man who has consistently worked for the success of our party.”

According to Atiku, “Wike is eminently qualified for this important assignment, especially at these critical times when the country is desperately looking for change from the present state of despair in the land.”

The former Vice President explained that “because of Wike’s impressive track record, I have no doubt in my mind that he has what it takes to lead the re-energized, rejuvenated, repositioned and re-engineered PDP to victory in Edo state.”

He called on all PDP leaders and members to put personal differences aside and cooperate with him in the successful implementation of this important task.

According to Atiku, “we should be solidly united in this task by throwing our weight behind Governor Wike in the effort to retake Edo State and return it to the path of even greater development.”

The Wazirin Adamawa noted that PDP is the only party with the broadest national appeal and with the capacity to save our unity and restore faith in our union.
