Edo 2020: APC faction chooses Ize-Iyamu as consensus aspirant | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Former Secretary to Edo State Government and governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2016 governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has emerged the consensus aspirant of the All Progressives Congress faction loyal to the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.

Ize-Iyamu obtained the nomination form of the All Progressives Congress today (Wednesday) in Abuja.

He was accompanied by other aspirants such as Gen Charles Airhiavbere, Engr Chris Ogiemwonyi, and Hon. Ehiozuwa Agbonayinma among others.

Ize-Iyamu in a statement released through his Campaign Organisation and signed by the Director of Communication and Media, Mr. John Mayaki, described his purchase of the nomination form as “another stride in the quest to move Edo State forward”.

He said, “By obtaining the form today, we have formally placed our name on the party’s ballot for our internal primary next month (June 22). It is another great stride and we are thankful to the other aspirants who have joined us here today to offer support.

“There have been efforts to cause disunity in our party and pit people against each other by those who have sadly embraced politics without principles and are openly rebelling against the leadership of our party because they believe they have absolute power. But as it is clear from today’s event, Edo APC is united and these deviants may have a loud voice but they don’t represent the majority.

“Everyone here may have personal ambitions but we are bound together by the common desire to fast-track the transformation of our state through a transparent, effective, and accountable governance that will improve the living standards and social well-being of our people. And we all recognise that this cannot happen unless we dislodge the present administration that has failed this great party and the people of Edo State.

“An accepted truth is that Edo State needs a government that is alert, proactive, and prompt; not one that has scant regard for the rule of law and seeks to gain an unfair, undemocratic advantage through the manipulation of serious matters of public health.”
