The United States Government has congratulated Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State on his re-election in the July 14, 2012  governorship election.

Consul-General of the United States to Nigeria, Mr Jeffrey Hawkins expressed his government’s felicitations to Comrade Oshiomhole during a visit to his office, yesterday.

The Consul-General said, “I have come to congratulate you on your re-election.”

He however declined to make further comments in front of the cameras, preferring to hold a private audience with the Governor.

The private meeting lasted close to two hours after which the Consul-General and his entourage departed the Edo State Government House.

The Governor thanked the Consul-General for the visit and for congratulating him on his re-election.

It would be recalled that Governor Adams Oshiomhole beat his closest rival, Maj.-Gen Charles Arhiavbere (rtd) at the July 14 polls, which has been regarded as the freest ever held in the state with 477,478  to 144,235 votes.
