Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has predicted the victory of his Edo State counterpart, Godwin Obaseki, in the forthcoming governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress in Edo.
Fintiri said that the embattled Obaseki would overcome the political challenges in the APC in the state and eventually emerge the party’s standard bearer in the September 19 governorship election in the State.
The Adamawa governor, who is the Peoples Democratic Party’s Chairman of Ward Congresses Committee for Edo 2020 election, made the prediction about Obaseki while speaking to journalists on arrival at the Benin Airport on Monday.
He described the Edo governor as a democrat, who has behaved as one by creating the environment for the PDP to have a successful event through his approval of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium for their use.
Fintiri said, “Obaseki is a democrat; he has given us a venue for the event and we didn’t expect less from him. He will also lodge me in the Government House Quarters, which is normal.
“I believe Obaseki will overcome, and we will also overcome our challenges and meet at the election.”
He assured of fair process in the emergence of a candidate for the PDP in the Edo 2020 election.
“As chairman of the Committee, we will ensure a level playing ground and see that the best candidate emerges to contest with the APC candidate,” he said.
