You made the right decision- Obaseki tells Edo indigenes

Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Thursday emerged  as Governor-elect of Edo State upon his declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as the candidate with the highest number of votes in Wednesday's Governorship.
According to results announced by INEC, Obaseki polled 51.3% of the total votes cast.
Welcoming his victory, Obaseki lauded the salutary roles played by
President Muhammadu Buhari; his campaign manager, Osarodion Ogie; his wife Betsy Obaseki, even as he gave very special appreciation to the outgoing Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
Promising to press ahead with his campaign promises, he told the people of Edo State: "By your votes, you clearly affirmed your faith in my ability to lead our state into a new era. This is a responsibility Philip Shaibu, my running mate, and myself do not take lightly. Our promise to build a state anchored on a productive economy that will transform and empower our citizens is sincere.
"We promised jobs. We promised empowerment of our citizens. We promised improved social welfare services and a more secured state. We will strive to deliver on all of these promises. As we traveled all over our great state selling our programmes, we also took note of your concerns and problems, and I want to assure you that we will do everything in our power to address them.
"Let me, at this point, sincerely salute the courage of all those, who came out to exercise their franchise in spite of the intimidating manoeuvres of merchants of violence to derail the conduct of a peaceful, free and fair election; you are the heroes of this election! You saw through their propaganda and lies, and you made the right decision."
