Senator Ike Ekweremadu have congratulated Godwin Obaseki and his running mate Philip Shaibu on their victory at yesterday’s governorship election. Speaking through his facebook page, he said; ” I join other well meaning Nigerians to congratulate Governor Godwin Obaseki, his Deputy and running mate, Philip Shaibu, and indeed the PDP on this well-deserved victory”.
“While our electoral processes still leave much to be desired, I must say that compared to recent elections, the Edo State governorship poll has renewed the hope that we can get our
elections right, given the conduct of the
electorate, INEC, security agencies, and most of other stakeholders, which ensured a peaceful process and an outcome that reflected the will
of the people”.
He further emphasised that “the Edo 2020 election showcased the beauty of democracy: the supremacy of the people’s will over the whims and caprices of any single man or woman, be it a godfather or godmother.
And if there is a moral lesson to be learnt, it is also that no man can successfully play God, for God will always put men in their place”.
“I enjoin my brother, Obaseki, to see his popular mandate as both an approval of his stewardship in the last four years and a call to lead Edo land on the path of greater peace,
prosperity, and an all-round development”.
“I salute the leadership of our great party and my other colleagues with whom I served on the PDP National Campaign Council for Edo 2020
for this sweet victory”.
“Again congratulations to all of us and thanks to the people of Edo and Nigerians for their support”.
