OMOBAYO GODWINS MARVELOUS was a joke taken too far.

Momoh Andrew Ojo Momoh (aka) Special, Mrs. Ugbesea and Chief Taiwo Akerele, former Chief of Staff to Governor Obaseki, an APC Chieftain among other PDP Chieftains, who are too numerous to mention, including all our prominent Royal Traditional Rulers in all communities in Akoko-Edo lauded and celebrated the choice of Engr. OMOBAYO GODWINS MARVELOUS as the new Deputy Governor of Edo State.”
