EDO POLL: supporters stormed national secretariat as Ize-Iyamu pick up governorship form



Ahead next month governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Edo state to pick its final candidate the governorship election in September, Pastor Ize Iyamu has picked the party Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms.

Recall that Ize-Iyamu has emerged as the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the Edo state governorship election. 

Ize Iyamu was accompanied by some of the governorship aspirants: Prof. Ebegue Amadasun; Gen. Charles Airhiavbere (rtd.); Chris Ogiemwonyi, an engineer; Ehiozuwa Agbonayinma and Saturday Uwuilekhue, as well as other leaders of APC, thereby demonstrating their resolve and commitment to work together for Ize-Iyamu to emerge as the party’s standard-bearer.

In an online statement by his campaign organisation, signed by the Director of Communication and Media, John Mayaki, described his purchase of the nomination forms as another stride in the quest to move the state forward.

He said: “By obtaining the forms 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 (yesterday) to offer support.

“There have been efforts to cause disunity in our party and pitch people against one another 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 powers. It is clear from today’s (Wednesday’s) event that Edo State APC is united and these deviants may have a loud voice, but they do not 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 transparent, effective and accountable governance that will improve the living standard and social well-being of our people. 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 the one that has scant regard for the rule of law and seeks to gain an unfair and undemocratic advantage through the manipulation of serious matters of public health.”
