Governor Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun) has described the victory of Governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki of Edo state at last Saturday’s Gubernatorial election as a triumph of democracy and a well deserved feat.
In a congratulatory message to the governor through his Special Adviser and representative public enlightenment, media and communications, Zailani Bappa in Gusau Monday, Matawalle said the hands of the clock shall continue to tick forward for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He said the last election in Edo state was a lesson elsewhere for those who still believed in power mongering.
“I am not surprised at the outcome of this election considering your overwhelming acceptance by our party members in the last primary elections which I personally conducted for the party in Benin,” Governor Matawalle observed.
“But we must not miss the fact that all powers belong to Almighty God and He bestows it on whomsoever he wishes irrespective of who is considered as the underdog.
“For those who fail to realise this fact elsewhere, it is a clear lesson for them to become sober and jettison power mongering”, Matawalle counselled.
He congratulated the Edo state governor and wished him a successful tenure ahead.
“I hereby congratulate my colleague and the good people of Edo state for the wonderful outing on Saturday and the brilliant performance at the polls”, Matawalle added.
He admonished the governor to continue building on the good work for the benefit of Edo people in line with the laudable manifesto of PDP.
“Governance is all about the wishes and aspirations of the the governed. I enjoin you to build on the good work you have started in the last four years for your people”, Matawalle advised.
He said Obaseki won last Saturday’s gubernatorial elections in the state with a landslide victory.
