APC Speaks On Ize-Iyamu's Family Backing Obaseki

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has accused Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has paying N15 billion to emerge the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He made the allegation in a statement signed by his campaign Director of Communications, John Mayaki.

Naija News reports that Pastor Ize-Iyamu is the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the governorship election scheduled for September 19, 2020.

The APC guber candidate asked Governor Obaseki to explain to Edo people how he got such a huge fund to bribe the PDP.

Ize-Iyamu expressed optimism that he would defeat the PDP in the gubernatorial election.

“He is also yet to explain to the people of Edo State where he got the 15 billion Naira he paid the PDP tax-collectors to facilitate his imposition as the party’s emergency-hour candidate,” he said.

“It is no surprise, given the nature of Obaseki’s administration and sharp practices of both governor and appointees that such an agency is missing in Edo State.”
