Former governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has reacted to the outcome of Saturday governorship poll in Edo state that produced the incumbent Governor and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Godwin Obaseki.
Godwin Obaseki defeated his closet rival, Pastor Ize-Iyamu of All Progressive Congress with a margin of more than 80,000 votes after coasting to victory in 13 local government out of 18.
The People Democratic Party chieftain took to his official Twitter handle to congratulate and commend the goggedness of Edo people.
He wrote thus: The outcome of Edo State election has shown once again that we can have free, fair and credible elections if those in control of the FG allow @inecnigeria and security agencies to do their jobs without interference.
Gov Obaseki should remain in the @OfficialPDPNig, not minding the pressure that will be mounted on him. I also congratulate the people of Edo State, Nigerians and most importantly, the PDP for this sweet victory.
Most importantly, I congratulate my friend and “younger brother”, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for leading the PDP to this very important electoral victory.
May this mark the beginning of that all-important deliverance of Nigeria and its people from the bondage of APC.
