A former national Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has congratulated Edo State governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki over his victory at the Supreme court.
Oshiomhole however advised the incumbent Governor who was elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) to not be a sectional leader, but to be magnanimous in victory.
“As I had repeatedly reminded you during our several meetings, our relationship has through the years developed beyond being friends to being brothers of different parents. Whatever happened is unfortunate and I believe God has a reasons for everything.
“I have put all behind me and moved on. As I have consistently advised, please be magnanimous in victory. You are the Governor of all Edo people regardless of political leanings.
“Once again, congratulations Excellency! Please accept the renewed assurances of my very best wishes and high regards”, Oshiomhole said.
Recall that the incumbent Governor of the State was disqualified during APC governorship primary when Oshiomhole heads way as national Chairman of the party.
Obaseki, however, defected to the PDP, where he secured the party’s ticket and eventually won the September 19, 2020 governorship election.
Unsatisfied with his electoral victory, the APC thereafter approached the court to challenge Obaseki’s Certificates and other documents he used to contest the September 19, 2020 governorship election.
Obaseki won the litigation cases against him from the court of first instance to the apex court.
