Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo, says his re-election has sent the “lions and tigers into the zoo” to be caged permanently from Edo politics.
Obaseki spoke on Monday in Benin while addressing supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at Kings square shortly after a victory match around Benin city.
He secured 307,955 votes to defeat Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who polled 223,619 votes.
He gave an assurance that nothing would deter him from delivering the dividend of democracy to the people of the state.
“The message of Saturday’s governorship election means I should go and work for Edo people. It is clear, the Edo people have spoken loud and clear,” he said.
“You have helped me caged the lions and tigers in the State, you will never see them again in Edo because they are all in the zoo now where they belong.
“Today, I promise you that we will work for Edo people because no one will hinder us from delivering the dividend of democracy to Edo people.
“My deputy, Philip Shaibu, and I will go back to the office and work for Edo people. I want to thank everyone residing in the state; you spoke and we have heard you and ready to ever work for you.
