The Coordinator, Edo State PDP Governorship Election Campaign Council in Australia, Mr John Osifo, has congratulated His Excellency, Godwin Nohaghase Obaseki, on his reelection as governor of Edo State.
He is of the view that the re-election as far as he is concerned was sacrosanct in order for him to continue with the lauable developmental strides he had started in his first tenure. Mr Osifo maintained that the people of Edo State have chosen the right leader in the person of Mr Godwin Obaseki, adding that he is prepared to contribute substantially to investment drive of Obaseki’s government using his connection with the business community in Australia.
He commended INEC for it’s neutrality and urged the commission to continue to live above board in order to be able to get back the confidence and trust of the People. He equally commended the role played by the law enforcement agencies particularly the Nigerian Police for it’s ability to protect the voters and ensure that the votes of the people counted in the election. Mr Osifo particularly commended the people of Edo State for their resolve to end godfatherism which was evident in the huge turnout of voters as early as 7am, inspite of the pandemic, to cast their votes and stay there to defend it.
He declared ‘ I am quite proud of the resilience of my dear good people of Edo State for turning around the hand of the clock of democracy which was heading to a Disastrous end pointing out that Edo State is now regarded as a role-model in the quest by Nigerians to enthrone a sustainable democracy which would be a cynosure to the international community.
