A former governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has described the reelection of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State as a “well-deserved victory.”
He made this known in a statement on Monday through his Principal Private Secretary, Muhammad Inuwa Ali, in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The PDP chieftain particularly congratulated the people of Edo State for the governor’s victory because their action “symbolizes hope for every true democrat in our country.”
He said Obaseki “Worked very hard for the people of Edo State and they have reciprocated by coming out in droves not only to cast their votes for you but also to defend their votes and ensure that the multitude of election riggers mobilized by agents of doom, from different states, to steal the Edo election was made ineffective.”
“The good people of Edo State have spoken. And the true choice of the people had prevailed. I, therefore, join all citizens of goodwill to congratulate the people of Edo State on the successful and peaceful conclusion of the gubernatorial election which was held on Saturday, September 19, 2020.”
He added:” I am especially congratulating the Edo people for their foresight in re-electing their hardworking and effective Governor, Gov. Godwin Obaseki to continue with the excellent work of developing Edo State.
”Beyond this success, the action of the good people of Edo State symbolizes hope for every true democrat in our country.”
“Without a doubt, our victory in Edo State was hugely facilitated by the outstanding commitment, resilience, courage, and the doggedness of the chairman of our Campaign Council, His Excellency Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and the entire members of the Campaign Council including all PDP governors. I commend you all as we celebrate the success-for-democracy in Nigeria.).
“Let me also thank the representatives of the international community in Nigeria, especially the United State embassy in Nigeria and the United Kingdom embassy in Nigeria for their timely advice to merchants of election malpractice and perpetrators of electoral violence.”
