PDP said the campaign council will be inaugurated on Friday, August 28, at the party's national secretariat in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja via zoom due to the Covid-19.

Other notable members of the council are Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, Governor Benedict Ayade of Cross River, and Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa state.

Others are Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo, Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state and a host of top chieftains of the party.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has slated October 10, 2020, for the gubernatorial election in the southwest state.

PDP, who earlier announced Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) as its candidate having defeated other aspirants in the party's shadow election, will hopefully give All Progressives Congress (APC) a tough run this time.
