“On behalf of His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo, Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, Oba of Benin, the Benin Traditional Council wishes to congratulate His Excellency, Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, Governor of Edo State, on his re-election for a second term in office.

“As His Royal Majesty said on numerous occasions, the Benin Throne is non-partisan, on election day the people spoke because the voice of the people is the voice of God”, he said.

The Oba further hailed President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Peace Commission headed by General Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd), the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies for their roles in ensuring a credible election in the state.

The monarch urged all the citizens of the state to support Obaseki in his developmental strides.
