Governor Godwin Obaseki has emerged the winner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship candidate for the Edo State election.
Naija News reports that Obaseki who would not represent the PDP in the September 19 election polled 1,952 out of total accredited votes of 2024.
Reacting after his victory, Obaseki revealed that he almost gave up on his re-election bid.
The Edo State Governor promised not to disappoint the people of the state for the confidence reposed on him.
Obaseki said: “Today makes a defining moment for our dear state. With today’s election result, it is clear that there is no mountain. I thank my family for their encouragement.
”I salute all our party members for standing tall when it became necessary to do so.
”I almost quit running for a second tenure all because of overbearing god-father, but the PDP cover provided us with the umbrella when it was heavily raining. Kenneth Imasuagbon and others made this possible.”
