“We are ready for Edo. We will not leave anything to chance. We will leverage on Obaseki’s performance.

“We have low hanging political fruits in the two states. We should go with all seriousness.

“PDP has bright chances in the two states. Edo has registered over 2,000 since new registration started,” Fintiri said.

PDP Chieftain in Edo, Chief Tom Ikimi, also expressed confidence that PDP would win Edo, following the performance of Obaseki.

Ikimi said that Obaseki had distinguished himself as one of the best governors in the country.

“He is the first governor to be bold enough to step forward to make a basic salary of N70,000 to every worker,” he said.

Ikimi added that PDP candidate in Edo, Asue Ighodalo, had the capacity to turn the state around.

On his part, former National Chairman, South-West of PDP, Dr Eddy Olafeso,  expressed confidence that the story from Ondo would be that of success and victory.

Olafeso said that the party leaders and stakeholders were united behind the PDP candidate in the state, Agboola Ajayi.

He said all that was needed at the moment was the total support of the party leaders and elective members. (NAN)(
