During the award ceremony in Lagos, Governor Obaseki was accompanied by his wife, Betsy, along with key officials including Secretary to Edo State Government, Osarodion Ogie; Chief of Staff to the governor, Osaigbovo Iyoha; state Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa; Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Blessing Agbebaku, and other members of the EDHA; Chairman of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Edo State chapter, Anthony Aziegbemi.

After being presented with the award, Obaseki remarked: “It’s not difficult to govern well, it could be inconvenient, but it’s not impossible; just do the right thing and what is just. This award has given me a renewed energy to strive and finish well.

“I am happy to be here to receive this prize for good governance from this distinguished group, the Public Policy Research and Analysis Center (PPRAC).

“It’s very humbling to be honoured amongst the awardees tonight, and it’s a privilege for me.

“This award comes to me at a very interesting time in my political career as I wind down my term in office. I am undergoing introspection, asking: ‘is it worth it? Has it been worthwhile? Is it being appreciated? Did you make a mistake?’ Coming here tonight to be awarded this prize for good governance makes one feel that it is worth it, making all the sacrifices.”
