A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) federal lawmaker has endorsed the Edo governor, Godwin Obaseki, for a second term.
The lawmaker, Joe Edionwere, who is representing Esan West, Esan Central and Igueben Federal Constituency, Edo state, said the governor is a “good man”.
The PDP in Edo state recently described as “indiscipline and ingratitude”, the endorsement of Mr Obaseki by some chieftains of the party.
Governor Obaseki is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The opposition PDP believes they could snatch victory away from the APC in the forthcoming governorship election because of the infighting within the ruling party. But they are worried that the endorsement of Mr Obaseki by PDP chieftains could threaten the PDP chances at the poll.
“This practice you will agree with us is condemnable and smacks of indiscipline and ingratitude. It defeats the spirit of camaraderie that is supposed to exist within a political party. It is a morale-damper and it’s unacceptable,” Dan Orbih, the state chairman of PDP said to the party national chairman, Uche Secondus, in a letter he wrote to him on Saturday.
