Edo 2020: Ize-Iyamu’s Aspiration Gets a Boost as Governorship Aspirant Steps Down for Him

One of the three governorship aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Edo State cleared to contest the June 22, 2020 primary election of the party has stepped down. Osaro Obazee, former chairman of Oredo local government council, on Wednesday, announced that he was stepping down to support the aspiration of Osagie Ize-Iyamu, a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, and former secretary to the state government. With Obazee’s withdrawal, the state party primary is now a two-horse race between Ize-Iyamu and the former deputy governor of the state, Pius Odubu.

Obazee pledged his support, alongside that of his followers, to Ize-Iyamu believed to be the aspirant to beat at the party primary election. An appreciative and ecstatic Ize-Iyamu has thanked Obazee for his thoughtfulness and selfless gesture. In a statement signed by John Mayaki, the director of communication and media of his campaign organization, Ize-Iyamu expressed gratitude to Obazee and described his support as another “important boost” for his aspiration days before the primary election. He said: “Hon. Osaro Obazee is a fine politician whose entrance into the race no doubt injected more life and excitement. He campaigned from his heart and took his message to members and followers of our party across the state. I am grateful to him for his endorsement and very confident that it will provide an important boost to our bid as we approach the primary election of our great party.”

 Ize-Iyamu had a few days ago also received the endorsement of all serving members of the House of Representatives on the platform of the APC representing their different constituencies in the state.
