The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, was on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, spotted playing golf at a private Golf Course.
This was in Yenogoa, the Bayesla State capital. He was earlier reported how Obaseki led a delegation to visit his Bayelsa counterpart, Senator Douye Diri, at the Government House, in Yenogoa.
The visit is coming days after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Obaseki as the winner of the September 19 Edo Governorship election.
Edo governor was in Bayelsa to express gratitude to Diri and the people of the state for their support which made his re-election possible.
Governor Obaseki, who said he remains grateful to Senator Diri, described his victory in the election as a unifying factor for the South-South region of Nigeria.
On his part, Governor Diri described Obaseki’s re-election as triumph for democracy in Nigeria, saying it was a litmus test that the country passed creditably.
Obaseki was accompanied by his wife, his deputy, Philip Shuaibu, his wife, PDP National Vice Chairman (South-South), Chief Dan Orbih, Senators and Rep members from the state, top government functionaries and party chieftains among others.
The Governor defeated Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and 12 other contestants to win the just concluded September 19 Governorship election in Edo state
