Governor Godwin Obaseki and his Deputy, Philip Shaibu have secured a certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
In his address, Governor Godwin Obaseki extended a hand of fellowship to the former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomole as well as to the APC Gubernatorial Candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
He said, “On a special note, I want to use this occasion to call on the former chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Aliu Oshiomhole, that, the fight is over. He should come and join in building the house, where he was part of laying the foundation. We have no malice. The only thing we disagree on is on the approach in moving Edo forward.
“We are one family in the pursuit to provide services and public vote for our citizens. I want to put it on record that the election of Septemeber 19, 2020 has been adjudged as one of the best conducted election in terms of it being free and fair.
“Our citizens have decided that for now, they trust us more with the affair of leadership. It does not mean that they did not have a role to play. It does not mean that they are not part of a family. So I am using this opportunity to extend a hand of fellowship to my brother, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu. and his other colleagues in the APC to join us and work with us so that we can move Edo State forward.”
