All Progressive Congress (APC) Governorship Candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has received another major boost after Obaseki’s family endorsed him.
Ize-Iyamu will contend with Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
Confirming this development the APC flag bearer said on his Facebook page: ”This morning, I received the endorsement of the prominent Obaseki family at a meeting led by Mr. Osaro and Victor Obaseki.
Like the Governor’s aides and appointees, members of his family agree that he has failed Edo people and doesn’t deserve re-election.
In their words, “Generally, the Obasekis have their own way of doing things.”
“The different branches of the Obaseki family, we are supporting our brother, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.”
“We will do all our campaigns for him fully, without let or hindrance.”
I’m very grateful to them for their courage and selflessness. They have even gone ahead to produce and donate beautiful face caps as a demonstration of their love and support.
It takes great love for State and the people to make such brave decision to sideline all sentiments and ties and back the better candidate.
I’m not going to disappoint them and millions of Edo people at home and in the diaspora who, daily, reaffirm their support.”
