A former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, has congratulated Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki, on his re-election.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Odigie-Oyegun said: “Please accept my deepest congratulations, Mr. Governor on your re-election as Governor of our great Edo State.
Odigie-Oyegun noted that Governor Obaseki and his Deputy, Philip Shaibu “have shown that with good work and principled leadership, the ills of overbearing and egocentric politicking in the country can be conquered.
The former APC National chairman described the victory in last Saturday’s governorship election as significant and noted that it marks a watershed in Edo and indeed Nigerian politics, and so places additional responsibilities on Obaseki’s shoulders.
Odigie-Oyegun, himself former governor of Edo state, wished both the governor and his deputy four more years of inspired and productive leadership of the people who have reposed so much confidence in them.
