Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, just like President Muhammadu Buhari, has admonished Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State to be magnanimous and graceful in victory.
During a “thank you” visit to the Delta State governor in Asaba on Wednesday, September 23, the governor felicitated with Obaseki who contested and won in the just concluded election in Edo State under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, urged him ‘not to allow the lions and the tigers to torment the people again’.
Naija News understands that Okowa’s statement was disclosed by the media unit of the Delta Government House, following Obaseki’s visit to the state.
Okowa expressed appreciation to God for the victory, saying that he was inspired to support Obaseki because of his humility and the fact that he was being oppressed. He said, “I want to congratulate you once again, and I feel very excited that you won the election.”
“I believe God did this in your life because you have proven to be a very humble man and people who boast too much don’t usually end well. I urge you to show lots of magnanimity and grace, but do not allow the lions and the tigers to torment the people again.”
