The Edo chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) says it is happy with Godwin Obaseki’s victory at the Wednesday governorship election.
The Chairman of the union, Mr Mike Uhumwangho, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Benin on Thursday.
Uhumwangho said the election was free and fair “ and I believe that the better candidate won”.
“We are 100 per cent happy that the candidate who the Edo NUT endorsed won the governorship race.
“I believe that he will continue the good work that Gov. Adams Oshiomhole has started and will do better,” he said.
He, however, called on the governor- elect not to renege on his electoral promises to revamp the education sector in the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that INEC had declared Mr Godwin Obaseki of the APC as winner of the election, who polled 319,483 votes to defeat Mr Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the PDP, who scored 253,173 votes.
