Presidential aspirant on the Platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) , Mr Peter Obi has just visited Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki to seek his support and Edo State delegates for the presidential ticket of the party.

Prime Business Africa reports that the former governor of Anambra State and vice presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 general elections  left the Edo State Government House at about 11 am on Wednesday after what sources said was a ‘very brief’ visit.

Obi was acvcompanied by some of his political associates, including Chief Ben Obi, and aides.

There were unconfirmed reports suggesting that the politician who prides himself as a successful business man, is on the verge of securing a consensus from the Southeast region where he comes from, as the like of former President of the Senate Pius Anyim, former Chairman of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN),  among others are already in serious contention.

Also  contesting for  Nigeria’s Presidency on the platform of other political parties are  former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Deputy Governor, Professor Kingsley Moghalu; former Imo governor and sitting Senator Rochas Okorocha, among others.

Obi’s visit to Obaseki comes barely one week after  other  PDP aspirants from the North, Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal  and immediate past President of the Senate and former governor of Kwara State Olusola Saraki visited Edo State Government House on the same mission.

the primary elections  in both the PDP and APC promise to be contentious as both political parties cleverly avoid clear geopolitical zone specificity in their professed zoning arrangements.

The Southeast region has been canvassing the right to Nigeria’s  topmost leadership  position in Abuja after  it first tasted it in early 1960s under the short-lived (three-month) military administration of General Aguiyi Ironsi.
