The Lagos state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed their strong determination to replicate the landslide victory recorded in the just concluded Governorship election in Edo State.
This was contained in a press statement issued by the Spokesperson of the PDP in Lagos, Taofik Gani.
The statement titled; ‘EDO VICTORY, WE ARE FIRED UP’, Gani said Godwin Obaseki’s victory has strengthened PDP’s determination to win the 2023 governorship election in Lagos State.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared incumbent Governor, Obaseki winner of Saturday’s governorship election in Edo for a second term of four years.
Obaseki polled a total of 307,955 votes to defeat his closest rival, All Progressives Congress Candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, who scored 223,619, for the second time in the same state election.
Gani said, “The PDP, Lagos state chapter, has congratulated Governor Godwin Obaseki, on his re-election as Edo State Governor.
“The Lagos state chapter particularly hailed the Governor for his ability to garner the needed vote to be declared at the first ballot, in the face of rumored federal might.
“To us in Lagos state PDP we have grasped from the well-deserved victory, the renewed commitment, and resoluteness to also win Lagos state to end godfatherism & imposition in Lagos politics.
“As a matter of fact, we are now more ever than before fired up to win Lagos State. We shall manifest this ability in the coming bye-elections in the state and eventually the 2023 general elections,” the statement concludes.
