Ahead of the September 19 governorship election in Edo State, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has come out to advise INEC and Nigeria’s security agencies to ensure the polls are free and fair.

The PDP Governors’ Forum, chaired by Sokoto state governor, under the leadership of Aminu Tambuwal, revealed this in his congratulatory message to Governor Godwin Obaseki on his emergence as the flag bearer of the PDP in the Edo State governorship election.

According to a recent statement signed by its Director-General, Cyril Maduabum, Nigerians and civil society groups must do all they can to make sure the election is hitch-free because the future of Edo residents is at stake.

Cyril then added that Obaseki’s victory in the primaries is an affirmation of the confidence the people of Edo State has in his ability to rule.

The forum said, “The constructive and supporting role played by the Edo state chapter of the PDP and the rank and file members of the party, for their exceptional conflict resolution mechanism and cooperation employed to achieve the seamless rancour – free outcome of the primaries.”

“The PDP Governors’ Forum under the leadership of His Excellency, Aminu Tambuwal, congratulates Governor Godwin Obaseki on his emergence as the flag bearer of the PDP in the Edo state governorship election, scheduled for September 2020.

“His victory in the primaries is an affirmation of the confidence the people of Edo State has in his ability to steer the ship of Edo state positively for another four years and on the record of his sterling performance in office in his current term.

“This victory should be a humbling one as it has been achieved on the backdrop of a grave injustice done to him by his former Political party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and a demonstration of the role of God in the affairs of men. It is indeed a call to continue faithfully serving the good people of Edo State.

“This victory is even more remarkable as His Excellency joined the PDP just a few weeks ago, and it is a testament to his leadership skills that he successfully got all other aspirants who started the race before him in PDP to step down for him and join him in salvaging the state without rancour or bitterness.

“We hope that he will continue to deploy this management skill in uniting the PDP and Edo people in the great task of enthroning good governance and accountability in Edo state.”
