Ize-Iyamu: Buhari Endorsed A Man With Corruption Baggage, PDP Says




What Ize-Iyamu Said After Buhari Endorsed Him For Edo 2020

The Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has faulted the meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

PDP’s Publicity Secretary in the state, Chris Osa Nehikhare said the meeting between Buhari and Ize-Iyamu was ill-advised and could dent the image of the president.

Recall that Buhari had endorsed Ize-Iyamu during the meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Reacting, Nehikhare said Ize-Iyamu needed Buhari’s endorsement to shore up his battered image and the opinion of Edo people, ahead of the governorship election.

He recalled that Ize-Iyamu was facing a N700m fraud in court after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, established a case against him, hence the need for Buhari’s endorsement.

A statement by Nehikhare reads: “Our attention has been drawn to the meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Edo State gubernatorial election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

“This meeting is ill-advised and a dent on the image of President Buhari, whose administration is known for the spirited fight against the hydra-headed monster called corruption, which has encumbered the development of our dear country for decades.

“Unknown to President Buhari and his advisers, the APC gubernatorial candidate is desperately in need of an endorsement from someone like the President, to shore up his battered image in Edo State and the larger court of public opinion that have followed Ize-Iyamu’s trial very closely.
