Ex-Governor of Edo state and former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomole has reacted to Governor Godwin Obaseki’s victory at the Supreme Court last Friday.
It will be recalled that APC candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu filed a case of certificate forgery against Obaseki at the supreme court. The court ruled in favour of Obaseki, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Oshiomole, in a statement made available to POLITICS NIGERIA on Monday night, congratulated Obaseki over his victory.
“Congratulations on your victory at the supreme Court which has effectively laid to rest all matters arising from the last election. 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 reason 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.”
