The former vice president had backed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate to emerge victorious in the September 19 poll.

In a congratulatory message after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced Obaseki as winner of the poll, Atiku described his victory as a declaration of independence from godfatherism.

“There is a new dawn in Edo State, and the hard-won victory of Governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki is not just a victory, but a Declaration of Independence from the anti-democratic forces of godfatherism and militarism.

“No victory could be sweeter than this, and I heartily congratulate the Governor, and the good people of Edo state for their resilience in the face of the forces arrayed against them,” he said.
