Oshiomhole Successfully Sold Obaseki To Edo People - SarakiNigeria's Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, has congratulated the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the just concluded Edo State gubernatorial election, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on his victory.
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 in the state in the last few months.”
He said, “Godwin Obaseki has proved to be a good private sector man who is also a grass roots 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.”
Saraki lauded the people of Edo 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 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.
