Progressive congressional senator Rochas Okorocha reacted to the loss of his party in the governor’s election held in Edo state on September 19.
The former governor of Imo state, who noted that the people of Edo state had revolted against injustice in the recently concluded government, also alleged that his party had failed to solve certain problems threatening its livelihood.
Okorocha told reporters;
“I will not congratulate the PDP, I will congratulate the Edo people. I congratulate them for standing up against injustice because the people that voted for Obaseki are not only PDP, even people in the APC voted for him.
“They want to stand up for injustice, Edo people are not docile, they know what they want and how they want it.”
Recall that Governor Godwin Obaseki of the PDP polled 307,955 votes to defeat Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the APC who collected 223,619 votes.
