Lagos State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated Mr Godwin Obaseki on his reelection as Edo State governor, saluting the governor particularly for his ability to garner the needed vote to be declared at the first ballot, in the face of rumoured federal might.
The party said this on Sunday in a statement issued and signed by its publicity secretary, Mr Taofik Gani, copy of which was made available to the Tribune Online.
PDP, while congratulating Obsseki on what it described as a well-deserved victory, noted that the party had grasped from it the renewed commitment and resoluteness to also win Lagos State in order to put an end to godfatherism and imposition in the state politics.
The party vowed that it was resolved more than ever to win Lagos State, saying it shall manifest this ability in the coming bye-elections holding in the state, come October 2020 and eventually in the 2023 general elections.
“To us in Lagos State PDP, we have grasped from the well-deserved victory, the renewed commitment and resoluteness to also win Lagos State to end godfatherism and imposition in Lagos politics.
“As a matter of fact, we are now more ever than before fired up to win Lagos State. We shall manifest this ability in the coming bye-elections in the state and eventually the 2023 General Elections,” PDP said.
