The Peoples Democratic Party has vowed to replicate the last Saturday governorship electoral victory of Governor Godwin Obaseki in Lagos to put an end to godfatherism in the state.
Taofik Gani, the PDP’s spokesperson in Lagos, in a statement titled: ‘Edo victory, we are fired up’, Obaseki’s victory would be repeated in Lagos State.
According to him, Godwin Obaseki’s victory has strengthened PDP’s determination to win the 2023 governorship election in Lagos State.
“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 rumoured 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,” Gani said.
Recall that in last Saturday’s governorship election, Obaseki polled 307,955 votes to defeat the All Progressives Congress Candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, who scored 223,619.
