Ize-Iyamu made this call in a TV broadcast on Wednesday night.
He said, “We are going to talk to everybody. We are going to bring everybody back. I want to salute my brother, the governor. I would like to appeal to him to return to the party. In every family, we have a disagreement.”
Ize-Iyamu in his statement said he does not want the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party to make the same mistake he made.
“I made that mistake before and I have come to realise that it was a grievous error and I will not want him as a senior brother to make the same mistake.”
“I will like to appeal to him to set aside his anger and come back. In APC, he is recognised as a leader and it would be difficult for him to be recognised as a leader in the new party he is going to.”
“Certainly, we are ready to work with him and all well-meaning Edo people. We believe it is time to bring peace back to Edo State,” he added.
