Governor Aregbesola to Edo electorate – “Thank you for not changing the change’’ | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun on Thursday in Abuja thanked Edo electorate for voting Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying “thank you for not changing the change’’ .

Aregbesola said this when he broke the news of Obaseki’s victory as Edo governor-elect to newsmen at the “National Day of Solidarity with Cuba’’. The event is a roundtable discussion on strengthening International Struggle against all forms of Blockade and Isolation against Cuba. “I am happy that my party has won in Edo.

I thank the Edo people for not changing the change. This change is here to stay,’’ he said.

 He appealed to Nigerians to continue to bear with the administration in the face of economy recession. “Please bear with us, it will soon be over and the nation will come out in victory,’’ he said.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had, earlier in the day in Benin, declared Obaseki winner of the governorship election in the state.

Obaseki polled 319,483 votes to defeat his closest rival, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who polled 253,173 votes. It will be recalled that the slogan for the PDP campaigns in the state was “change the change’’.

  1. Ole! You have made osun star a failed state and you still have mouth to talk in a matter that should not be your number one priority. Shameless fool!

  2. Just go and shave your disgusting beard and start looking like a modern man. Religion has blinded you and sent u back to the middle ages. Look at a governor looking like a normad. Is this the best Osun state can come up with? What a tragedy.

  3. Leaders are always subject of ridicules, no matter how much efforts they put to ensure good governance. In the same vein, religion is personal and it is a fundamental right of everybody. So, cursing or abusing someone because of his religion is s sheer waste of time. Whether a leader has done well or not, judgement is of the Lord. PEACE!!!
