Defeated Edo State governorship aspirant of the All Progressive Congress, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has called on the re-elected Governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki to return to APC.
Governor Obaseki had defected from APC to PDP back in June after his personal problems with his predecessor and former National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomole, led to him being disqualified from the APC governorship primaries. Obaseki was able to secure PDP’s governorship ticket after he joined the party and won the election.
In a television broadcast on Wednesday night September 23, Ize-Iyamu appealed to Obaseki to return to the APC.
“We are going to talk to everybody. We are going to bring everybody back. I want to salute my brother, the governor. I will like to appeal to him to return to the party. In every family, we have a disagreement.
Let it not be said that it was this disagreement that pushed him out. I made that mistake before and I have come to realize 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 recognized as a leader and it would be difficult for him to be recognized 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 said
