A former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has urged the newly re-elected Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki not to abandon the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after his victory at the poll.

Obaseki joined the PDP after he was disqualified from contesting the primary election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

His disqualification is unconnected with his political battle with his predecessor and former national chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole.

Fayose took to his verified twitter handle to make the call, noting that the Edo election has shown that Nigeria can have free, fair, credible elections if the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies are allowed to do their jobs without any form of interference.

He congratulated Obaseki over his victory and urged him to repay the goodwill of the people of Edo State by delivering good governance and fulfilling the campaign promises made.

Fayose also congratulated the national campaign council chairman of the PDP for the Edo election, Governor Nyesom Wike whom he described as his ‘younger brother” for leading the party to victory at the poll.

He said, “The outcome of Edo State election has shown once again that we can have free, fair and credible elections if those in control of the FG allow @inecnigeria and security agencies to do their jobs without interference.

“I congratulate Gov Godwin Obaseki and urge him to see this victory as a challenge by the people of Edo State to do more for them. Most importantly, I wish to remind him that @OfficialPDPNig came to his rescue in his hour of political need.

“Gov Obaseki should remain in the @OfficialPDPNig, not minding the pressure that will be mounted on him. I also congratulate the people of Edo State, Nigerians and most importantly, the PDP for this sweet victory.

“Most importantly, I congratulate my friend and “younger brother”, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for leading the PDP to this very important electoral victory. May this mark the beginning of that all-important deliverance of Nigeria and its people from the bondage of APC.”
