Edo People voted against godfatherism says Obaseki



Re-elected Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki says the collective will of Edo people made it possible for him to emerge victorious in the just concluded gubernatorial election in the state.

In his first reacting minutes after he was declared winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Obaseki expressed profound gratitude to the people of the state for once more reposing their confidence in him.

He said his re-election signaled the end of godfatherism in the South-South State.

“Words fail me in saluting our teeming supporters who displayed immense courage in the face of threats, intimidation, and brutalisation.
