….Hails INEC and Security Agencies
The Ogun chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congratulates His Excellency, Chief Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki on his well deserved success at the just concluded gubernatorial election in Edo state.
Our great party is also elated as we felicitate and rejoice with the good people of Edo state for their resilience and the entire PDP family in Edo state and in Nigeria by extension.
This victory is a profound testimony to the irreduciable fact that indeed, power resides in the people and it truly shows that there is no intimidating force however powerful that can stop a determined mind.
Our great party is particularly excited with the peaceful conduct of the people before and during the voting and collation period in particular.
As as a responsible party, we are also duty bound to appreciate and commend the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the entire security agents for their patriotic conducts in preserving the popular wish of the people.
We note with delight that unbiased conducts such as displayed by INEC and the security agencies will certainly contribute in no small measure to our national efforts at deepening democracy and consolidating its ideals.
Without mincing words, this singular electoral success is a profound signal that Nigerians, regardless of any form of intimidation can stand up and reject any form of overbearing shenanigans of Godfatherism and its undemocratic influences.
As a democratic political platform that enjoys unlimited goodwill and rich heritage of partnership with the people, we are however convinced that the ruling PDP government in Edo state will continue to maintain sound and harmonious partnership with the good people of Edo state. Certainly, it is a new dawn of prosperity in Edo state.
On the strength of the above, we wish to appeal to the Nigerians to continue to keep faith with us and continue to vote PDP in all future elections. As a party, we remain committed to the general good of the people with our resolve to return Nigeria to the path of all round prosperity.
