“The local governments, the state offices and all facets of units that needed to be accompanying in a viral campaign have all been put in place. They are currently consolidating on it.
“The campaign council that was set up considered very experienced persons who could be categorized as political warlords that have been fielded in several forms of politics in any areas.
“The party considered these persons very important because they will be needed and also quite understand that they are also contending with certain group of persons who are also known for their political dubiousness,” he said.

“Those who are experienced in details on how to handle elections matters, these are the ones I referred to as political warlords.
“They are those who can hold the front. They are the political gamekeepers. They understand when you put one or two together in politics and it can give this or that”.
On the issue of structure, Comrade Ogbaloi said the present situation and campaign in the country is beyond the issue of structure and quickly reflect on the success of the recent two million match in Edo for the party presidential candidate tagged the “Obidient Rally” that those that turned out were more structured.
