Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, has described the victory of All Progressive Congress (APC) flagbearer in Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, as a reward for dedication and commitment to service by the ruling party.
Bello in a congratulatory message to the governor-elect, signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Jibrin Baba Ndace, stated that the victory of Obaseki at the polls was a testimony that Edo people appreciated the developmental stride of Adams Oshiomole-led administration.
Bello however advised the governor-elect to ensure that he builds on the solid foundations already laid by Oshoimhole in taking the state to desired level.
"I want to congratulate Mr. Godwin Obaseki, Edo State governor-elect and Philip Shaibu deputy governor-elect on their victory at the just concluded governorship election in the state. Your track record as a seasoned technocrat and your antecedents as an astute administrator must have informed your choice by Edo people.
"Your emergence as the governor-elect in the keenly contested election was a testimony of the confidence the people have in you, as a team player whose contributions to Edo State development are outstanding.
"As the people have willingly and massively gave you the mandate, I enjoin you to build on the good foundation laid by the Comrade-Governor and ensure that Edo state maximally enjoys dividends of democracy.”
