Gov. Obaseki Explains Why He Is Sure He Would Defeat Ize-Iyamu
As the battle within the Edo state Chapter of the All Progressives Congress continues over who becomes the flag bearer of the party in the fourth coming election continues; Godwin Obaseki, the Edo State Governor has insisted that he is not afraid of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
This, Obaseki said when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
Ize-Iyamu contested the last governorship election under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), before defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In September 19, he is going to contest against Obaseli to clinch the APC ticket.
He will now go up against Obaseki for APC’s ticket in the September 19 poll.
“Why should I be? The last time I contested, he (Ize-Iyamu) was my opponent from the PDP and the votes are there.
“I beat him (when I had no track record as a governor) and now with the track record as a governor, I don’t have any fears,” Obaseki said.
