Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state, is the favourite to emerge as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo state.

The opposition party's governorship primary election is currently taking place in Benin, capital of Edo state.

Not less than 2,200 delegates are expected to vote in the election.

Obaseki, who recently defected to the PDP following his rift with Adams Oshiomhole, is locking horns with Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama and Kenneth Imasuagbon.

Some of the delegates at the primary election are bullish about his chances of emerging the party's flagbearer.

According to Sylvester Okoro, chairman of Orhionmwon LGA, “We will succeed in this governorship election. Obaseki is a humble man who will bring everyone together.” 

Similarly, Ezehi Igbas, a former Edo house of assembly member and a delegate, says “PDP has come to stay in Edo and we are all going to work and ensure our candidate wins the governorship election.”

It remains to be seen whether his candidacy will stand, given the crisis in the APC.

A couple of days ago, President Muhammadu Buhari backed the Victor Giadom leadership of the party, following the suspension of Oshiomhole by the Appeal Court.
