My dear people of Edo State, leaders and members of our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), I thank you all for your support and for electing me as the flagbearer of our party in the September governorship election.
How could I have survived the epic political battles that I was dragged and forced into, in the last one year, without you my people, solidly behind me?
This victory is our collective victory and I urge our people to remain vigilant as we kick-start our campaigns for the main election. I appeal to you to remain steadfast in your convictions to enable us win the war ahead just as we have won several battles together.
I thank you Edo people.
GODWIN NOGHEGHASE OBASEKI – EDO STATE GOVERNOR
