SALUTES EDOLITES FOR ENDING NECK-KNEELING GODFATHERISM IN THE STATE
The progressive and politically conscious members of E5R heartily felicitate with the indomitable, indubitable and irrepressible Governor of Edo State, His Excellency Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki for his well-deserved and resounding victory at the just concluded Gubernatorial contest in the State.
The body notes with efulgent nostalgia that the Governor’s resolve to confront the monstrous and intestinal sucking godfathers in Edo State at the risk of his highly exalted office has given birth to a novel era of political culture in the State. His courageous refusal to kowtow to the ridiculous demands made by some alleged ‘peacemakers and arbitrators’ throughout the period the feud between himself and the retired godfather lasted, is an attestation to the Governor’s strong will and uncompromising stance on the issue of good governance and wellbeing of Edolites.
While commending the Governor for his uncommon display of courage and strength of character, the body also warmly salute the electorates for choosing to reward Obaseki’s laudable achievements with their votes in spite of the tempting wads of Naira that were dangled at them by the opposition at voting centres across the State.
The body also seizes this opportunity to call on the Governor to see the renewal of his mandate as an invitation to continue on the path of honour that he has chosen and never to relent in his resolve to continuously deploy the resources of the State for the greater good of all, rather than using same for the gratification of the monstrous few.
Once again, congratulations Governor Godwin Obaseki and the good people of Edo State.
