Former President Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated the governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki on his re-election on Saturday.
A statement by Dr. Jonathan reads;
“I congratulate His Excellency Governor Godwin Obaseki on his re-election as Edo State Governor. I also congratulate the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for overseeing a process that allowed the votes of the good people of Edo to count.
“Democracy can only be consolidated to promote good governance in our nation and continent when our elections become credible, transparent and truly represent the wish of the voters.
“Through their ballot papers, Edo people have spoken in favour of Governor Obaseki. He should therefore rise above partisan politics and govern for the good of all.”
