  1. Obaseki and PDP has less than 10% chance of participating in the election. PDP is not interested in the election because they know that they can never win the election. They are also not interested in Obaseki knowing that the court will disqualify him. They are after Edo money for 2023 and they have gotten enough of it. There is no way a serious PDP will sell their ticket to both Obaseki and Philip. As tax collectors they have collected enough from the confused and desperate Obaseki.

  2. This is a team work, kudos to gov wike & co. May God
    almighty enlarge its coats to work till the end. More united.
