Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, has congratulated the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Edo governorship election, Mr Godwin Obaseki, on his victory at the polls.
In a statement issued on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Mr Turaki Hassan, the speaker said, “the Edo governorship election was not won just by the APC and Godwin Obaseki, but by the people.
“The conduct of the people of the state during the elections is commendable as reports have shown that the election was peaceful and no life was lost nor violence reported.
“The rest of the country will do well to emulate the people of Edo State subsequently.
“The APC’s victory in Edo is a telling challenge for politicians and leaders as it has shown that the Nigerian voting population is now more aware than ever of the fact that delivering the dividends of democracy to the people guarantees victory’’.
The speaker said that Gov. Adams Oshiomole had done very well and it would be correct to say that the APC’s victory was largely predicated upon his record of performance in the state.
He described the governor-elect as “a renowned technocrat’’ assuring that he would deploy his vast knowledge and wealth of experiences to efficient and effective management of the affairs of the state.
Dogara thanked the people of Edo for placing their trust on APC.
