Businessman and philanthropist, Captain Idahosa Okunbo, has congratulated Peoples Democratic Party and the governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, over his re-election in Saturday’s poll.
Okunbo, a strong supporter of the All Progressives Congress candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, also commended the people of the state for trooping out to vote the candidate of their choice.
He said: “I congratulate the people of Edo State who took their civic responsibility with a sense of urgency and trooped out to express themselves. I also wish to congratulate His Excellency, the incumbent Governor, Godwin Obaseki for winning the mandate to continue for another four years. Congratulations.
In the past three months, pitched battles have raved in the airwaves, in towns, in the streets, in villages and in every hamlet across Edo State for the governorship seat at Osadebey House.
“The candidates presented their manifestos to the great people of Edo State. Thankfully, the elections have been free and fair and peaceful.”
