Obaseki Embarks On ‘Thank You Tour’ To South-South States 

In a bid to show appreciation for the support he got during the just concluded election in Edo, Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state will commence a Thank You tour of South- South states this afternoon, Tuesday 22, beginning from A saba, the Delta state capital.

Following Obaseki’s disqualification from participating in the APC primary, he defected the PDP and was greatly supported by PDP governors in the South- South..

The PDP also named Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers as the chairman of the party’s National Campaign Council in Edo.
