The immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, responded to Governor Godwin Obaseki ‘s victory in the just-concluded election for governorship.

After polling 307,955 on Sunday, Governor Obaseki was re-elected to beat his closest competitor, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressive Congress ( APC), who received 223,619 votes.

In fifteen local government areas of the state, the former APC governor prevailed, while Ize-Iyamu, who was assisted by Oshiomhole has won three LGAS.

Reacting, Oshiomhole expressed gratitude to the people of the State of Edo in a viral video released Wednesday.

Oshiomhole, who claimed that you win some and lose some in life, added that he remains solid and safe, contrary to reports that he is dissatisfied with the result of the election.

The APC chief said in the one-minute video, “In life, you work hard and leave God for the result.” You are doing your best, trusting God to bless your efforts.

I feel good, I feel powerful. Thank God for that. You win some in life and you lose some, but life persists,” he said.

He also claimed that he was driven to tears and encouraged by the resolve of the elderly and nursing mothers to cast their votes, who defied the harsh weather.

“If septuagenarians were not disappointed because their card readers don’t work, I was motivated that if they don’t give up at their age, why should I give up.” And I ask our people to trust in our government, because we’re not going to have another government. This is our nation and we’ve got to make it perfect. We need to reinforce democracy and we need to develop it.

“Have confidence in God and have confidence in our government, no matter the result of an election, or a particular edition of a method.”
