He said that "It has never happened before in the history of ASUU Unical branch election that four will contest for the chairperson but it happened today and this congress has deemed it fit to vote me. You've reposed in me confidence unimaginable. I'll defend you. Power indeed lies with the people.

"For other Comrades, you've done well. If you didn't contest with me, I wouldn't have known the seriousness of this business. I'll extend the hand of fellowship to them. I don't know everything. All of you have been in the ASUU so please come let's close ranks and work together in the interest of the Union".

Edor added that "The business of unininsm is all about Welfare of members. Whatever affect the welfare of our members, we'll go out doggedly to fight against it".
