Governor Godwin Obaseki’s second term aspiration in Edo State  The storms have started gathering against him. As the planning  gain traction, the two major political parties, the in control All Progressives Congress (APC) and main rival Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are putting in all0 their best, promising to make the forthcoming Edo 2020 very volatile.
  
Adams Oshiomhole  Already,  APC national chairman,  and the incumbent government are attractive in some political hide and seek. While Obaseki’s close associates are pressuring him to drop his running mate Hon. Shuaibu in the 2016 gubernatorial election, some PDP stalwarts have intended a ‘cold’ strategy to use Obaseki to turn the tide against APC chairman.

Meanwhile, Gen. Charles Airhiavbre who is thought to be banking on both Oshiomhole’s and PDP’s support seems to be caught in the middle of the intrigues, especially after the governor returned from his overseas vacation to announce that there was no division between him and the APC chairman.  The development has given rise to a multiplicity of interest groups within the ruling party in Edo.
