The Governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, while speaking on the recently concluded governorship election, expressed satisfaction at its outcome.

Oshiomhole said the Godwin Obaseki’s victory is a win against the tradition of godfatherism in Edo state.

He said "We have humbled Chief Tom Ikimi even in the local government he claimed to have created. We defeated Chief Raymond Dokpesi in his polling unit, his Ward and his local government. That reassures that the ruthless deployment of media machinery is not enough to distort the will of Edo people to determine their choice.”

According to him, the All Progressives Congress (APC) shattered the rigging machinery of those who called themselves godfathers.

He further said Dokpesi, Igbinedion and Ikimi have been humbled by the outcome of the election which was held on Wednesday, September 28, 2016.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officially declared Obaseki as the winner of the governorship polls.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the results of the Edo governorship election.
