    Godwin Obaseki, the Governor of Edo State has described his victory in the 2020 governorship election in the state as a victory over godfatherism. Obaseki made the statement on Sunday after he was declared the winner of Saturday’s governorship election in Edo State by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). As earlier reported by Bibian Anekwe News, Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), polled 307,955 votes to defeat all other candidates including Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who polled 223,619 votes. INEC’s Returning Officer, Prof. Akpofure Rim-Rukeh declared Obaseki winner of the election. Speaking after his electoral victory, the Governor while commending the people of Edo State, described his re-election as “triumph over godfatherism”. He said, “Words fail me in saluting our teeming supporters who displayed immense courage in the face of threats, intimidation, and brutalisation. “The collective will of Edo people made it possible for us this triumph over godfatherism. Congratulations to Edo people.”
