Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has picked his Deputy Governor, Philip Shuaibu, as his running mate for the September elections.
Speaking after receiving his certificate of governorship primary on Saturday, Obaseki said, “you don’t change a winning team.”
Describing his emergence as the PDP governorship candidate as a miracle from God, Obaseki said: “It is miraculous. I and my deputy are grateful to this great party.
“In hours of tribulation in our political storm, PDP gave us a huge umbrella. This ought to be our first party because of the values of justice, fairness. We found out that transparency and quality of governance reign in this party.”
Obaseki also thanked the National Organising Secretary, Austin Akobundu; National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan; and the National Legal Adviser for their prompt responses to issues regarding his waiver and eventual nomination.
