Following the impressive outing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates in the Edo State House of Assembly election, Edo-based socio-political groups have applauded Governor Godwin Obaseki for leading the APC to a landslide victory.
Representatives of the groups, who spoke to journalists, said the outstanding performance of the APC in the March 9 State House of Assembly election, is not only unprecedented but goes to show that Governor Obaseki’s developmental strides and style of governance resonate well with Edo people and residents.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Edo State announced that the APC cleared 23 of the 24 seats in the State House of Assembly, with the election in Orhionmwon II State Constituency declared inconclusive.
In a congratulatory message, the Progressive Benin Youth Forum (PBYF) described the APC’s outing in the poll as an affirmation of Governor Obaseki’s sterling performance, adding, “we congratulate the governor on the historic victory in the State House of Assembly election.”
Another group, Edo People in Diaspora Association, said the performance of the APC in the State House of Assembly poll is not a fluke, noting that the governor deserved such a support as he has shown to be “humble, noiseless, and an unassuming history maker.”
The Godwin Obaseki Support Group (GOSG) said Obaseki will go down in history as a governor who led the APC to landslide victory in the State House of Assembly Poll.
Another group, Edo Grassroots Movement, said “We hail Governor Obaseki, the champion of the masses because you put us first, we are behind you like a rock. Congratulations on the 100 per cent victory in the Edo State House of Assembly election.”
