Why I’m against Obaseki, out to work against PDP in Edo – Orbih 

The National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), South- South, Chief Dan Orbih, has said he rejected offer to lead the party’s forthcoming governorship campaigns because the Edo state governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, was yet to fulfill his 2020 re-election campaign promises to the people.

Orbih said he would therefore not be able to face the people again to canvass for votes for PDP.

The party’s national vice chairman who leads the legacy group faction of the party disclosed this during the Edo Central PDP leaders/stakeholders ,eeting of the group held in Irrua.

He also stated that a lot of members of the PDP in the state were dissatisfied with the state of the party.

According to him, “the future of Edo state is paramount in our heart.

“Hence the candidate with the capacity to address the problems and give the people strong sense of belonging would be the candidate we will work for irrespective of party in the next Governorship election.”

At the meeting , the legacy group demanded the reversal of the appointment of the new deputy governor, Engr. Godwins Marvellous Omobayo, who they described as a member of the Labour Party.

They threatened to work against the party in the September 21, governorship election, if their grievances were not addressed.

On his part, the immediate past deputy governor of Edo state, Philip Shaibu, said the candidate of the PDP was not acceptable to the party because according to him, “he is not a home boy”.
