Edo residents of Benin City could not contain their excitement as they took to the streets on Sunday to celebrate the declaration of Obaseki who vied under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the winner of the Saturday election.

Some of the jubilant residents trolled a former governor of the state, Adams Oshiomhole, who was the major force behind the candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Also reacting to the victory of Obaseki, Senator Dino Melaye, a former member of the upper legislative chamber lampooned Oshiomhole and the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Obaseki defeated Ize-Iyamu twice in a space of four years on different political platforms having defeated him in 2016 governorship election while flying the flag of APC and Ize-Iyamu in PDP.

Melaye while celebrating the victory of Obaseki on Sunday said Oshiomhole had been downgraded to Osho pikin.

He said, “Fellow countrymen and women, I salute you once again. I am reaching you directly from Edo. What we used to have as Osho Baba has now been reduced, downgraded and degraded to Osho pikin. Nobody should call Osho Baba again, never! The only thing you now have is Osho pikin…

“How can you expect that a man with the umbrella will not win during the rainy season? Definitely, the PDP won. APC, how market? Oshiomhole, how market?” Melaye said before bursting into a song to mock Oshiomhole and Tinubu, who had released a video ahead of the election, urging the people of Edo to reject Obaseki.

“The dollars brought in a bullion van to Edo have gone down the drain.”
