Edo Governorship Poll: Obaseki Extends Friendly Requests To Oshiomhole, Ize-Iyamu


A call was on Tuesday (today) extended to the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole; and the APC candidate in the Saturday election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to put their differences aside and work for the betterment of Edo State.

The call emanated from the incumbent governor of the state and winner of the September 19, 2020 governorship election in the state, Godwin Obaseki.

Speaking during a speech on Tuesday after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) issued him and his deputy, Phillip Shaibu, certificates of return, Obaseki said, "To our friends and our brothers on the other side of the divide, we are one family in the pursuit to provide services and public good for our citizens.

“Our citizens have decided that as for now, they trust us more to provide them leadership. It does not mean that they do not have a role to play. It does not mean that they are not part of a family.

“I’m using this opportunity to extend hand of fellowship to my brother, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and his other colleagues in the All Progressives Congress to join us and work with us so that we can move Edo forward.

“On a specific note, I want to use this occasion to call on the former chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, that the fight is over and he should come and join in building the house where he was part of laying the foundation.

“We have no malice, the only thing we disagreed on is in the approach in moving Edo forward.”
