PDP party had painstakingly visited all the 64 wards in the northern senatorial district of the state before commencing the same exercise in the central senatorial district canvassing votes for its governorship candidate, Governor Godwin Obaseki.
The PDPD has Strategically, visited most of the ward, Governor Obaseki commissioned some state-sponsored projects in fulfilment of his 2016 campaign promises, while some new projects were flagged off.
Based on the successes of the PDP’s campaign strategy, the opposition All Progressives Congress, which only flagged off its campaign on Saturday, August 8 seemed to have realised that its strategic campaign of moving from one town to another in the local government areas is weak.
The exercise, according to pundits, has little or no impact as the people are finding it difficult to understand the APC’s campaign messages.

According to the report, the APC is now thinking of embarking on a late hour ward-to-ward campaign, an indication that they lack ideas.
