The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, is confident of clinching the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial ticket.
Already, the PDP has fixed February 3 for the conduct of its primary election where a flagbearer will emerge for the governorship election.
Despite their differences, Shaibu, who was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday, said Obaseki will support him.
“I can bet you that Mr Godwin Obaseki, the Governor of Edo State, my boss and senior brother will support me,” he said.
“He has said it at the secretariat where we had our stakeholders meeting that whoever wins, he will support and whoever that will win is nobody but Philip Shaibu.”
