National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, announced this on Friday, saying that Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, was named the deputy chairman.
“@OfficialPDPNig NWC appoints @GovWike as Edo State Governorship Election National Campaign Council Chairman. The deputy chairman is Adamawa State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Fintiri,” he disclosed via Twitter.

Ologbondiyan said, “With the people of Edo State on the side of Governor Obaseki and the PDP, the coast is already clear and any attempt by anybody to subvert the will of the people will surely be met very stiff resistance.”
