Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has congratulated the Governor-elect of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on his victory in yesterday’s gubernatorial election.

Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, described Obaseki’s success as well deserved and expected by those who have keenly followed the electioneering campaigns in the state in the last few months.

“Godwin Obaseki has proved to be a good private sector man who is also a grassroots politician. He is a good flag bearer of our great party, the APC, and a mobiliser who really showed that he will be a worthy successor to the incumbent Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

“I also congratulate Governor Oshiomhole who has in the last seven and a half years diligently served the people of Edo State and has led a vigorous campaign to sustain the APC legacy in Edo State. The Governor has shown courage, devotion and dedication in selling Obaseki to the people,’ he said.

Saraki however lauded the people of Edo State for the massive turn-out, the peaceful manner in which the election went and for voting for the APC candidate. He also praised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the good arrangement it put in place to ensure a free, fair and peaceful election while also applauding the performance of all the security agencies.

The Senate President advised Obaseki to sustain the developmental strides made by the outgoing Governor while also reaching to all the groups and interests in the state so that his victory can further unite the people.
