Earlier, Obaseki said his re-election as governor represented a new hope for the restoration of confidence in democracy and its institutions.
Obaseki said that democracy and participatory government, is facing a crisis of confidence locally and globally, because the liberties which democracy offers and which generations have taken for granted, and are now being questioned.
This, he said, has caused many to reevaluate the capacity of democracy to regulate the affairs of men and deliver freedom, equality and good governance.
