On behalf of the entire PDP leaders and members in the Owan Clan of Edo North Senatorial District , l wish to heartily rejoice with HE Governor Godwin Obaseki, GGO, and our Son,a dependable and loyal ally , H.E. Phillip Shaibu , the Deputy Governor on your well deserved victory at the just concluded Edo Guber polls.
I am particularly excited with the fact that Edo people found your Excellencies worthy of their trust and thus, they trooped out en masse to assert their solidarity, despite some political distractions and desperation in some quarters of the opposition .
Edo people have finally spoken and their voices resonated loud and clear , across the length and breadth of this great country.
I am extremely proud to be an integral part of the process which uprooted godfatherism in the polity of Edo state and replaced it with the sovereign will of the people.
I am also particularly thrilled by the outcome and results of the elections in the six local govt areas of Edo North Senatorial District, which have drastically whittled down the relevance and influence of the opposition party in Afemai land , for good !
The days of those astronomical and prohibitive wide margins in election results from Edo North are gone for good ……….thanks to the political dexterity and sagacity of H.E. the Deputy Governor , Comrade Phillip Shaibu.
Whilst the most uncommon humility of H.E. Gov Godwin Obaseki has already endeared him to Edo people as a whole , the people of Owan Clan in Edo North Senatorial District are imploring your Excellency, to sustain the deliveries on the on-going Legacy projects , that would definitely transform Edo state to the “Dubai” of Nigeria before 2024 .
Once again ,I heartily congratulate your Excellencies , Gov Godwin Obaseki and Deputy Gov Phillip Shaibu on your watershed victories at the 19th September Guber polls, and may the sweetness of your election victory uplift the life conditions of our dear Edo people .
Senator (ENGR) YISA BRAIMOH
