…We are ready to reclaim Edo State
The Edo State PDP Chairman, Chief Dan Orbih today met with some leaders of Edo State PDP in Abuja where they resolved to work together in the greater interest of the Party and its teeming supporters. They emphasized their commitment to work towards enthroning good governance in Edo State and to seek the overall wellbeing and happiness of all its people.
At the meeting held on Monday, 02 December 2019 at the Maitama residence of High Chief Tom Ikimi in Abuja, Chief Dan Orbih debunked insinuations that he was against the efforts of concerned leaders towards the strategic strengthening of the party aimed at regaining its winning ways in Edo State. The PDP State Chairman debunked the purported suspension of some very senior members of the party by some misguided elements and described it as a joke taken too far. He however informed the meeting that appropriate disciplinary action has been taken against all those involved.

A two term PDP former Executive Governor of Edo State, Chief Lucky Igbinedion who presided, commended Chief Dan Orbih and High Chief Tom Ikimi CON, for their resolve to put behind them whatever differences that they may have had and work together for the higher interest of the party in Edo State. The meeting unanimously endorsed the enthronement of a strong and united leadership for the party ahead of the upcoming Edo State Gubernatorial elections in 2020.
