The Obaseki family both at home and in the diaspora has thrown it’s support for it’s son, Governor Godwin Obaseki. The family who made this known in a world press conference at their ancestral home in Benin City said it is imperative they come out at this time to show their support for their illustrious son whom they are well pleased with.
The clarification became necessary due to negative insinuations going around that the Governor has neglected and shut the doors of his goodwill to the Obaseki’s family.
According to the family, the fact that the Obaseki’s are not seen frolicking at government house, Benin City or mounting undue pressure at the governor does not in any way translate to a sour relationship between the Governor and his family.
The Obaseki family stands together with the Governor and are indeed appreciative of his good governance which is visible to Edo people.The statement said.
They thanked Governor Godwin Obaseki for the giant developmental strides witnessed across the State while calling on him to remain focussed and shun detractors who are hell-bent on destabilising the State.
The statement also called for the sheathing of swords by the warring parties saying that the State interest should be placed above individual interest.
They also thanked Adams Oshiomhole for the opportunity and support given to Obaseki to emerge as his successor, urging him to join hands with Obaseki to move the State to greater heights.
Their appreciation was extended to the State party exco of APC, the State executive council and the people of Edo State for their unflinching support.
The Oba of Benin was not left out in their appreciations, the family thanked the revered Oba for the fatherly role he has played thus far and his blessings for the administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
