The governorship aspiration of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the September election in Edo state, received a massive boost on Saturday as 11 state governors, ministers, top leaders of the party and many supporters rallied for him.
The immediate past national chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who was excited about the rally commended the APC governors for identifying with the people of Edo State and to “show that we will have a governor who will return Edo to earmark from ‘eye-mark.’
“I will tell you why the outgoing governor (Obaseki) is gone. G.O. in Godwin Obaseki means go. Pastor Ize-Iyamu will come and rekindle, re-energise, digitalise, consolidate, advance and prosper Edo people.
“Never again shall we have a governor who will describe Edo youths as miscreants. We do not have miscreants in Edo State. It is the business of the governor and the government to empower the poor and elevate them to the position of dignity,” he said.
