PDP Govs back Onaiwu for Edo Guber Race



By Simon Ebegbulem

AHEAD of the 2016 governorship election in Edo State, there are indications that governors of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, may have thrown their weight behind the co-ordinator of the Governors’ Forum, Mr Osaro Onaiwu. Vanguard gathered that the PDP governors gave their nod to Onaiwu’s ambition last week after a meeting of the governors in Abuja. A source close to one of the two PDP governors in the North told Vanguard that the governors feel more disposed to their coordinator, because, “They want to deal with somebody who they know very well. They have dealt with Onaiwu over the years and since he has indicated his interest to run for the governorship of Edo State, they believe this is the best time to pay him for the services he has rendered to the Governor’s Forum over the years. “The governors believe that the coordinator has imbibed the necessary experience to deliver if elected. When the issue of Edo governorship election was raised, one of the governors told his colleagues that the coordinator (Onaiwu) has been there at the formative stage of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum and has demonstrated uncommon loyalty to the party and therefore, should be given the necessary support for the governorship,” the source stated. Other PDP governorship aspirants for the Edo 2016 governorship race includes Senator Ehigie Uzamere, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, Matthew Iduoriyekemwen and Chief Solomon Edebiri.
