The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Thursday, visited his Cross River State counterpart, Prof. Ben Ayade, at the Cross River Government House, in Calabar.
The visit is coming exactly 4 days after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Obaseki as the winner of the September 19 Edo Governorship election.
Our correspondent in Calabar reports that the Edo governor was in Cross River to express gratitude to Ayade and the people of the state for their support which made his re-election possible.
Governor Obaseki, who said he remains grateful to Gov Ayade, described his victory in the election as a unifying factor for the South-South region of Nigeria.
In his reaction, Governor Ayade congratulated Obaseki on his victory, saying with the reclaiming of Edo State by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the South South zone was now more united.
