President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday in Abuja congratulated the government

and people of Edo State on the successful conclusion of the gubernatorial

election, and the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC)

candidate, Godwin Obaseki at the polls.
In a telephone call to Governor Adams Oshiomhole, President Buhari

commended the well-articulated campaign programme of the APC in the state,

the doggedness of the governor, governor-elect and party members in going

round the state to reach the people with records of good governance over

the years and a promise of continuity.
According to the President, the outcome of the election clearly reflected

the mood of the people to sustain the pedigree of responsiveness,

forthrightness and diligence that Governor Oshomole brought into the

service of his people.
''The victory is good for democracy, for Nigeria and the people of Edo

State,'' he said.
President Buhari said the victory was well-deserved as the campaign train,

which he joined, worked hard to sell its people-centered manifesto.

The President also applauded the conduct of the Independent National

Electoral Commission, security agencies, corps members and electorate in

ensuring a peaceful election.
INEC had announced that Obaseki won the majority of the votes cast, with a

total of 319,483 votes, and he was closely followed by Pastor Osagie

Ize-Iyamu of the PDP, who polled 253,173 votes.
