Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, Wednesday night visited his Akwa Ibom State counterpart, Dr. Udom Emmanuel, at the Akwa Ibom Government House, in Uyo.
The visit is coming exactly 3 days after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Obaseki as the winner of the September 19 Edo Governorship election.
Igbere TV correspondent in Uyo reports that the Edo governor was in Akwa Ibom to express gratitude to Diri and the people of the state for their support which made his re-election possible.
Governor Obaseki, who said he remains grateful to Gov Udom, described his victory in the election as a unifying factor for the South-South region of Nigeria.
On his part, Governor Udom Emmanuel said with the “reclaiming” of Edo State by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the South South zone was now “more united.”
Earlier, Governor Obaseki was at the Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers States Government House to thank Governors Ifeanyi Okowa, Douye Diri and Nyesom Wike for the roles they played in his electoral victory.
Obaseki was accompanied by his wife, his deputy, Philip Shuaibu, his wife, PDP National Vice Chairman (South-South), Chief Dan Orbih, Senators and Rep members from the state, top government functionaries and party chieftains among others.
Igbere TV reports that Governor Obaseki defeated Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), 12 other contestants to win the just concluded September 19 Governorship election in Edo state.
