At the 60th Anniversary of the Midwest Referendum and Edo State @ 32 years celebration yesterday, the executive governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, was photographed alongside his predecessor, Senator Adams Oshiomhole.
Senator Adams Oshiomhole is a sitting member of Congress. After serving as Edo State’s executive governor for eight years, he served as the party’s previous National Chairman.
A few years ago, Adams Oshiomhole, a former national president of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, split with Godwin Obaseki, who took over as president.
“It’s been sixty years since our great leaders from Edo, Delta, and portions of Bayelsa State united in agreement for their self-determination, giving rise to the then Midwest Region,” said Governor Godwin Obaseki on his verified Twitter profile. A new era for a people known for setting the pace and possessing a cultural and historical background that is incredibly diverse and rich began with this historic event.
“As we commemorate this milestone once more, we must continue to work together to overcome obstacles, build on our achievements, and sustain collaborations in order to build a strong and productive region,” the Peoples Democratic Party Chieftain continued.
Godwin Obaseki, the executive governor of Edo State, recently posted a message on his verified Twitter account, and it drew a lot of responses from his many fans and followers.
