The Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki has lauded President for supporting a vibrant and fair Judiciary that upholds the will of the masses.
The Governor also appreciated the Peoples Democratic party for supporting and holding steadfastly to the vision of the party towards a better Edo State.
He said this while reacting to on Friday Supreme court judgement that cleared him of certificate forgery case preferred against him by the appellant, All Progressives Congress (APC).
Governor Obaseki in a statement described the decision of the apex court as “a vindication of the decision of God and the people of Edo State”.
With particular reference to the September 19, 2020 governorship election, stated that the court judgement puts to rest the diabolical controversy contrived by opposition elements over my credentials and puts to shame the individuals that sought to swindle Edo people with falsehood and lies in pursuit of pecuniary gains.
“I am also grateful to His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) for ensuring a vibrant and fair Judiciary that upholds the will of the masses.
“I dedicate the victory to Edo people, who resolved to stand by me through it all despite the campaign of calumny.
“I appreciate the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for supporting and holding steadfastly to the vision of our party for a better Edo State.
“From the statement by the Supreme Court Justices, it is clear that they align with what Edo people knew all along, which is that there was no merit in the case. The controversy was diabolical and ill-willed. It is reassuring that the Judiciary has upheld the wishes of the masses once again.
“The judiciary has once again, demonstrated that it is willing and capable of defending our democracy. I see this victory as a renewed call by God Almighty to rededicate myself to His service and that of the people of Edo state”, Governor Obaseki said.
