Obaseki made the comment on Thursday, September 22, while speaking to journalists in Benin City, the state capital.
“From all the feelers we are getting from across the state, the indications are that we will win by 75 per cent,” he said according to Punch.
“That is what the Gallup poll I monitored last night indicated. Particularly in Edo-South, things have improved quite significantly from the last poll that we received.
“Edo-Central has been very interesting. The amount of defections from the PDP has, essentially, crumbled the opposition party in the centre and even their strongholds. They are becoming very jittery.
“Edo-North is essentially open to us, apart from a few units in Akoko-Edo and one unit in Owan-East. So, from what we can see today, barring any unforeseen circumstances, barring violence that would scare people from the poll and barring any attempt by the opposition party to cause disruption in some highly populated voting units so that the results from those units would be inconclusive, we believe that we are very comfortable,” he added.
Obaseki also said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is nervous because many of its members are defecting to the APC.
