After weeks of speculations, President Muhmmadu Buhari has finally endorsed the candidature of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Edo state governorship election coming up next month, September.

ALSC had on Wednesday reported that Buhari was reluctant to endorse Iyamu over the pending N700 Million criminal prosecution against the candidate.

But Buhari today, Friday, endorsed the APC candidate when the leadership of the party, led by the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee and governor of Yobe State, Mai Malla Buni, presented Ize-Iyamu to Buhari at the State House, Abuja.

Speaking with State House Correspondents during a briefing, Buni said President Buhari gave Ize-Iyamu his blessings at the meeting.
