The Edo State Governor , Godwin Obaseki , has commended Edo people, the Rivers State Governor , Nyesom Wike , and other Peoples Democratic Party Governors for their roles in his re- election.
The governor gave the commendation during his thank-you visit to Governor Wike at Government House in Port Harcourt, on Wednesday.
Obaseki was accompanied on the visit by his wife, Mrs. Betsy Obaseki ; Deputy Governor , Rt. Hon . Philip Shaibu, and his wife , Mrs. Maryann Shaibu, with members of the Edo PDP Campaign Council led by Chief Dan Orbih.
The governor said, “ I want to thank Edo people for their doggedness and determination in ensuring that their votes counted and the will of the people achieved.
“ The victory in the September 19 poll was made possible by God and God used the people as an instrument to actualise my second term ambition.
“ After I was pushed out of my former party , this house was the first place I sought solace. You took me in as a brother , out of the storm , changed my clothes , and gave me food to eat.
“ It was in this house , the Campaign Council met to work out the key strategies that led us to victory . You mobilised people across the country. You moved to Benin, went through the humiliation and attacks. You supported us and we won .
“ It will be a sin against God if we do not come to say thank you . Even if the victory we are celebrating is from God . He has used people like you to make it happen .”
Obaseki assured that “ Edo will be better with his re-election as his administration will concentrate on delivering development to Edo people” .
