Edo: Obaseki Names Buhari Father Of Democracy In Nigeria

Governor Godwin Obaseki has again commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the role he played in ensuring the success of the September 19 governorship election in Edo State.

The Governor singled out Buhari for praise because according to him, the President could have used federal might to secure victory for his party in the polls but he decided to do away with partisan politics.

He, therefore, declared that President Buhari should be remembered as the father of democracy in Nigeria because he “had a choice to ensure and insist that his party wins in the state but he rose above partisan politics and insisted the right be done.”

Obaseki spoke on Tuesday after he received his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for a second term in office as the Edo State Governor.
