#EdoDecides2020#: Obaseki’s Victory Finally Nails Godfatherism – Senate Minority Caucus


By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Senate Minority Caucus has congratulated Governor Godwin Obaseki on his commanding success in the governorship election in Edo State.

Speaking via a statement in Abuja, the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, on behalf of the Caucus stated that the victory was heartwarming, one that signaled the birth of a new era and death knell to Godfatherism in Nigeria politics.

Abaribe also lauded the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for its steadfastness and determination, despite the forces the had to contend with on D-Day, adding that the victory was a confirmation that ultimate power in a democracy belonged to the popular sovereigns and not some self-acclaimed demi-gods. The statement also challenged the people of Ondo State to be ready to replicate what has happened in Edo State so that Nigeria will be returned to genuine and people-oriented democracy
