Awka – The Anambra State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Mr. Godwin Obaseki, Edo Governor-elect, and Edo stakeholders saying it was convinced, based on reports monitored, that Obaseki fought a good battle and earned a good victory with the active backing of members, leaders and stakeholders of the party led by Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

In a press statement by Okelo Madukaife, the state publicity secretary of the party, the party thanked Edo people for trouping out without losing interest, despite an 18-day postponement of the polls.

The party said, “We urge victorious Obaseki to begin the process of total reconciliation within the fold of our structures in Edo State, even as we look forward to the choice of capable men and women to help him achieve the twin campaign goals of industrialising Edo State and empowering the people economically.

“We have tremendous respect for democracy and the bill of rights contained in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“To that extent we recognise the right of any group to rejoice and another to protest, even when there is nothing genuine to protest as the nation witnessed one of the freest and fairest election in recent times, raising hope for further incremental changes in the conduct of elections in the country.”

The party commended security agencies for rising up to the occasion, securing the state and ensuring that the process went on smoothly.

It also commended Independent National Election Commission (INEC) for a good attempt and a successful conduct but acknowledged that there is room for improvement.

The accreditation hiccups recorded by journalists and the commotion recorded as an extension of that at the INEC state collation centre, it said, were avoidable.

It noted that simultaneous accreditation and voting mode saved a lot of time and believed that the new challenges posed by the method should be fine-tuned and perfected for future elections.

The APC commended the 18 losers in the election for their comportment and mature conduct and trust that they would in their earliest convenience, send their congratulations to the clear winner of the election, Mr. Obaseki.

It urged Edo people to continue to appraise information received with intelligence, even when the aim was to misinform.

“In this wise we condemn the false statement made by Pastor Osagie  Ize-Iyamu, the PDP candidate in the election on Silverbird 93.7FM Benin City in the throes of the election last Wednesday that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State and Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State were in Edo State during the election, when both were nowhere near the state and one of them was abroad.
