Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has been called on by the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, to forget things that happened before the election and work with everyone in his administration.
Obaseki was charged by his party Chairman on Monday at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, during his thank-you visit to members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP.
Secondus called on Obaseki to work with the three arms of government, especially those who offended him in the course of the last election.
Secondus said: “My advice for you is that the election is over, the expectations are very high. You must now show the experience you came with from the private sector.”
“In the political world, it’s your ability to lead everyone together, especially in your last tenure.”
“It’s important to make sure that there are three arms of government the executive which you head, even though you’re the overall boss, make sure that the legislative arm, those who have offended you, who ran helter-skelter, bring them back, they’re your children.”
“You’re the father of Edo, bring them on board and work with all of them because that’ll be your legacy.”
“It’s not money or anything else but your ability to bring everybody on board to work with you, and I’m quite sure that Edo people are ready to even those from the other party, who are willing to come, let them come.”
The PDP National Chairman further stated that the victory of Obaseki in the September 19 election is a confirmation of what God could do when men arrogate his power to themselves,
He charged the Edo State Governor to continue with his humility and fear of God.
“Today, Nigeria needs leaders like Obaseki and his deputy that are humble, who can listen and care for their followers.”
