Ayodele Fayose, a former Ekiti State governor, has urged Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Naija News reports that Obaseki had won his re-election for a second term after defeating Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Reacting to Obaseki’s victory in a post on Twitter, Fayose said the outcome of the Edo State election has shown once again that Nigeria can have free, fair and credible elections.
The former governor congratulated the Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo Governorship election and Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, for leading the party to victory.
Fayose wrote: “The outcome of the Edo State election has shown once again that we can have free, fair and credible elections if those in control of the FG allow INEC and security agencies to do their jobs without interference.
“Gov Obaseki should remain in the PDP, not minding the pressure that will be mounted on him.
“I also congratulate the people of Edo State, Nigerians and most importantly, the PDP for this sweet victory.
“Most importantly, I congratulate my friend and “younger brother”, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for leading the PDP to this very important electoral victory.
“May this mark the beginning of that all-important deliverance of Nigeria and its people from the bondage of APC.”
