A former Chief of Staff to the President, Chief Mike Ayegbeni Oghiadomhe has congratulated Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki on his victory at yesterday’s Gubernatorial election.

Chief Oghiadomhe described the election as not only free and fair, but also the most credible election Edo State has witnessed in recent years.

He commended Governor Obaseki for his resilience, determination and confidence in the nation’s democratic governance.

Chief Oghiadomhe, who was Deputy Governor of Edo State from 1999-2007, asserted that the re-election of Governor Godwin Obaseki is a product of his uncommon performance in his first term and commitment to the needs and aspirations of Edo people.

He expressed confidence in the Governor’s ability to surpass his performance during his second term and make Edo State the preferred destination for local and international investors.

The former Deputy Governor commended the people of Edo State for turning out in large numbers and voting for a man who has carved a niche for himself in good governance and for believing in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

While commending President Muhammadu Buhari for creating an enabling environment for a peaceful, free and fair election, Chief Oghiadomhe thanked the security agencies, the traditional institution led by the Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, the National Peace Committee and all stakeholders for their roles in having a violence-free election.

He prayed for God’s abiding grace and wisdom for the Governor and his Deputy, Comrade Philip Shaibu.
