Captain Hosa Okunbo makes u-turn, congratulates Governor obaseki on his reelection as governor of Edo State

Edo state billionaire, Captain Hosa Wells Okunbo, who was one of Governor Obaseki's undisputed hater, has turned around to congratulate the governor on his victory. 

Shortly befor the election, Captain Hosa vowed to leave Edo state if peradventure Governor Obaseki wins the election, but however, it seems the captain has eaten his words and ready to make peace with the governor so he can remain the captain of the ship. 

In a lengthy press released signed by him, he wrote;

In the past three months, pitched battles have raved in the airwaves, in the streets, in villages and in every hamlet across Edo state for the governorship seat at Dennis Osadebe Avenue, G.R.A Benin City, Edo State and also the period i have witnessed the most orchestrated attacks on my person where i was continously in defense because of my beliefs.

The candidates presented their manifestos to the great people of Edo state. Thankfully , the election have been free and fair and peaceful. 

The people have spoken in no uncertain terms.

it is incumbent upon me as a protagonist for the candidate of the APC, Pator Ize-iyamu , to now issue a statement in my personal capacity as a private citizen as i did at varios times during the campaign.

First of all. i congratulate the people of Edo State who took their civic responsibility with a sense of urgency and trooped out to express themselves, i also wish to congratulate His Excellency , the incumbent Governor, Godwin Obaseki for winning the mandate to continue for another four years. Congratulations. 

May the next four years take the state to the promised land under your leadership. As a loyal citizen of the federal Republic of Nigeria and an Indigene of Edo state , i urge all the people at home and abroad to join hands with the governor to build a vibrant democracy , and also to build a vibrant economy where the youths can find gainful employment in an atmosphere of peace and security.

God bless the people of edo state and may God bless the federal Republic of nigeria
