Auchi, the administrative headquaters of Estako West Local Government Area of Edo, on Thursday evening, came alive as hundreds of supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) lined the streets in celebration of the party’s victory in the Wednesday governorship poll.

A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent who went round the locality reports that supporters, with trumpeters, danced through major streets, singing victory songs.

Some APC chieftains who spoke to NAN described the victory as a confirmation of the people’s trust and belief in the Gov. Adams Oshiomhole-led APC government in Edo.

Mr Yakubu Musa, an APC Chieftian, said “the APC victory is as a result of the good foundation laid by Gov. Oshiomhole in infrastructure development in the state.

“I can tell you that the incoming government of Godwin Obaseki and Philip Shuaibu will make the difference.

“This difference is to build on the foundation of Oshiomhole as with Tinubu, Fashola and Ambode in Lagos State. The transformation will be monumental.”

Another APC Chieftain, Hajiya Mariam Abubakar, advised the incoming government to hit the ground running as the people were anxious to see massive developments.

She said “My message to the party is to hit the ground running after the swearing of the governor because it is not just about winning and celebrating.

“It is about putting smiles on the faces of Edo sons and daughters as is with Oshiomhole.

“And because Obaseki is the engine room of Oshiomhole, I dont have any doubt; I know the governor-elect will not disappoint the people who gave him this mandate.”
