The people of Edo State have been commended for their wisdom in voting convincingly for Mr. Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), during Wednesday’s governorship election in the state. Rivers State APC made the commendation in a statement issued on Thursday afternoon, in which it congratulated Governor-Elect Obaseki and Edo State APC for their victory at the polls.
“There is no doubt that Edo people have made the right choice because Mr. Godwin Obaseki is the best man for the job. He is tested and trusted and will continue the good work which the APC Government in Edo under the watch of His Excellency, Comrade Governor Adams Oshiomhole, has done in the past almost eight years. We urge the incoming Obaseki Administration to toe the developmental vision of the Comrade Governor and provide the good people of Edo State the type of governance they deserve to continue to enjoy,” Rivers APC said in the statement issued in Port Harcourt by the State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya.
The party congratulated all those who made the Edo election peaceful, noting that, by so doing, they have put Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, who sponsored political thugs with a view to rigging the election, to shame. “INEC, the security agencies, the Edo State Government and the great people of Edo State have proven that with commitment and proper planning, we can make our country great and even export our brand of democracy to other African countries,” Rivers APC said.
“We are so pleased with the functionality of the Card Readers’ machines and believe that the National Assembly should set in motion the machinery for a law formally approving electronic voting for future elections in all parts of the country,” the party added.
Finally, in demonstration of our happiness over this great feat by the people of Edo State, the Rivers State APC confers the title of OGBUAGU (Killer of the Tiger) in extension Destroyer of the undemocratic elements in Edo on Gov Adams Oshiomhole for demonstrating greatness and shrewdness in the politics of Edo State. For defeating the Igbinedions in their own Local Government, “Ovia North East and the Raymond Dokpesi in his Etsako East LGA” and most importantly for causing the Edo PDP Leadership to accept defeat even before INEC concludes collation and declaration of the entire results simply present Adams as the true OGBUAGU of Edo politics. We congratulate him for securing Edo from the hands of Treasury looters and misguided politicians.
We urge the great people of Ondo state to emulate the Edo people during their own gubernatorial election and save their people from the dying and destroying PDP spirit.
