A Statement From Captain Idahosa Wells Okunbo 
In the past three months, pitched battles have raved in the airwaves, in towns, in the streets, in villages and in every hamlet across Edo State for the governorship seat at Dennis Osadebe Avenue GRA Benin city Edo state.
In this same  period, I have witnessed the most orchestrated attacks on my person where I was continuously in defense because of my beliefs and the position I took.
The Candidates presented their manifestos to the great people of Edo State. Thankfully, the elections have been free and fair and peaceful.
The people have spoken in no uncertain terms.
It is incumbent upon me as a protagonist for the candidate of the APC, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to now issue a statement in my personal capacity as a private citizen as I did at various times during the campaign.
First of all, I congratulate the people of Edo State who took their civic responsibility with a sense of urgency and trooped out to express themselves.
I also wish to congratulate His Excellency, the incumbent Governor, Godwin Obaseki, for winning the mandate to continue for another four years. Congratulations.
May the next four years take the state to the promised land under your leadership. As a loyal citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and an Indigene of Edo State, I urge all of the people at home and abroad to join hands with the governor to build a vibrant democracy, and also to build a vibrant economy where the youth can find gainful employment in an atmosphere of peace and security.
God bless the people of Edo State and may God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Signed:
Captain Idahosa Wells Okunbo
