EDO: BUHARI CONGRATULATES OBASEKI, OSHIOMHOLE, INEC ON VICTORY AT POLLS
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.
