Newly re-elected Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has praised his supporters for helping him “cage Lions and Tigers” by coming out en masse to vote for him in last Saturday’s election.
The Governor was referring to his victory over members of the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State that he has repeatedly referred to as godfathers.
Obaseki, noted that the overwhelming support he got from the people of Edo State had put an end to godfatherism and ensured that ‘the lions and tigers’ were permanently caged in the zoo.
Obaseki said this on Monday while addressing party supporters at the State Museum Ground, Kings square in Benin City after a victory road show across various streets in the capital, Benin City.
He stated that his victory at the gubernatorial poll is a call for his government to go and work for Edo people, noting that it is clear that the people of Edo State have spoken.
Obaseki also promised to collaborate with his “brother” and Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu to work for Edo people.
