My victory is stimuli to work for Edo—Obaseki

Obaseki presents budget commiserates with Momoh family

Reacting to the verdict of the Supreme Court which upheld his election thereby affirming his position as the Executive Governor of Edo state, Governor Godwin Obaseki said his victory at the Supreme Court was a stimulus to work harder on his promise to move Edo forward.

Obaseki, who spoke at a three day retreat for new Commissioners and Special Advisers held in Lagos, noted “These serial victories at the poll and the various courts have undoubtedly given me and the good people of Edo State joy, but it should also teach us a vital lesson that at all times, no matter the severity of the odds, we must stand on the side of fidelity, honesty and truth.

“To my dear good citizens of Edo State at home and abroad, let me state again that our many victories are stimuli to work harder on our promise to move Edo forward.

“ The state APC chairman, Ojezua said, “The judgment was short but right on point. And it reiterated all that I have been saying. PDP had no case and the Supreme Court had found out this morning (yesterday), when they said they have studied all the processes and they were devoid of merit. What that means is that they were no evidence whatsoever upon which a tribunal could have reached verdict in their favour and therefore, they did not establish their case.”

On his part, former governor of the state, Mr Adams Oshiomhole said: “What the Supreme Court said is a vote of confidence in the electoral process and the electoral commission because the argument of the PDP was that the election was rigged and you cannot rig elections without the collaboration of INEC. So, when the courts found that Obaseki won the elections, it means that all the pronouncements by INEC were true in fact and in law which means that PDP was just a busy body and they ought to have accepted the will of the people. It is so clear that there was no case.”

“We have always said that PDP did not win any election. All their lies and blackmail has come to an end now. We thank God because we know he knows our heart and has been with us. He used us to set this state free from bondage and he has been with us. We will keep serving our people to justify the confidence he has in us. We are happy that Obaseki is doing well and I congratulate him for what he is doing so far and this sweet victory.” [Vanguard]
