Edo State, Nigeria – Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in last Saturday gubernatorial election, Pastor Ize-Iyamu, has called on his rival and sitting governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki to return to APC.
During a television broadcast on Wednesday night, APC candidate for the just concluded state election, Ize-Iyamu said, “We are going to talk to everybody. We are going to bring everybody back. I want to salute my brother, the governor. I will like to appeal to him to return to the party. In every family, we have a disagreement.
“Let it not be said that it was this disagreement that pushed him out. I made that mistake before and I have come to realise that it was a grievous error and I will not want him as a senior brother to make the same mistake.
“I will like to appeal to him to set aside his anger and come back. In APC, he is recognised as a leader and it would be difficult for him to be recognised as a leader in the new party he is going to.
“Certainly, we are ready to work with him and all well-meaning Edo people. We believe it is time to bring peace back to Edo State.”
The results for the Edo State 2020 governorship elections saw Obaseki polling 307,955 votes to defeat Ize-Iyamu, who secured 223,619 votes.
The governor was disqualified from contesting the APC primary election after he fell out with his former godfather, Adams Oshiomhole over the running of Edo State.
But Obaseki defected to PDP where he ran for the election and won.
