Edo State governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has reacted to the Friday’s verdict of the Court of Appeal concerning his state’s governorship election on September 28, 2016.
According to The Nation, the governor is happy with the verdict because it proves that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cannot deny the truth that he won the election square and fair.
He said, “I had no doubt in my mind that given the quality judiciary we had, it would go straight to the matter.”
“One thing you must always know is that the truth never changes. I won the election. God has affirmed that I won the election. The court has now affirmed that I won the election.
“No matter how hard they (opposition) try, they cannot change the truth. I am sure they will appeal.”
“We will meet at the Supreme Court and it will be the same verdict,” he added.
Obaseki also thanked the people of his state for their patience while making promises.
“I thank Edo people for their patience with us. We want to assure them that we are not distracted and we will continue on our path to recovery, on our path to progress?.
“We have done a little bit of work. I know that people are pleased with what we have done. But I want to assure them that it is only the beginning.
I want to assure them that with the continued support we are receiving from Edo people, we will put in everything we have to make sure that Edo State becomes the state that it should be,” he said.
