Good morning, family, friends and fans.
It’s with all sense of gratitude that I inform you all that the journey we started together has come to a temporary end last night.
This is so because my great party, the APC, has zoned the governorship out of Edo North. It is still victory for us, as in less than three weeks, we made so much incursion into the political space of Edo state.
We will definitely be rewarded in due time.
Inform your groups, friends, and our fans, please.
Thank you all.

Dr. Ernest Afolabi Umakhihe
