The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated its gubernatorial flag-bearer for the forthcoming Edo State Governorship Election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu on his victory over the week.
A member of the partyâ€™s caretaker committee in charge of publicity, Prince Dayo Adeyeye in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja said the outcome of the primaries that threw up Ize-Iyamu were reflective of the wishes of the partyâ€™s delegates.
â€œIt is indeed a triumph of a popular candidate and victory for democracyâ€. The outcome of the Election in Edo State which is one of the best elections so far in Nigeria has proved to the opposition in the State that the PDP is a one united house built on the principle of delivering power to the people and the sustenance of our democracy at all levels irrespective of our various differences.â€ Adeyeye wrote.
While thinking the delegates and leaders of the party, PDP also lauded the Commissioner of Police in Edo State and other security agencies for providing security during the election.
â€œIn the same vein, the Party appreciated the presence of the Umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that observed the Election both from the State and National, and further appreciated the other two aspirants who fought gallantly to make the day a success.â€ Adeyeye wrote.
