Edo 2024: Ize-Iyamu predicts victory, blames 2020 defeat on saboteurs

Edo State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, yesterday, vowed to reclaim Edo State from the ruling Peoples Democratic People (PDP) in the forthcoming governorship election, saying he has the capacity and enjoys the support of the people to win the state for his party.

Osagie Ize-Iyamu was APC candidate in the 2020 Edo State governorship election. He lost to Governor Godwin Obaseki of the PDP.

Ize-Iyamu spoke at the APC’s secretariat in Benin when he declared his interest to contest the governorship ticket ahead of the 2024 election, saying the party was sabotaged by leaders of the party outside the state in 2020, insisting that the APC must win the election this time and that he remains the best candidate for the party.

Ize-Iyamu described the Senator representing Edo North, Adams Oshiomhole as the only National Chairman of the party, under whose leadership the party provided money for candidates during elections just as he also commended the leadership of the party for keeping the party intact despite being in opposition in the state.

“Next year is critical, we’ll be going into elections again. By September, there will be election for the office of the governor and by November, the new governor will be sworn in.

“That is why our party must do everything possible to ensure that we win that election, all the work you have done so far, all the dedication, the commitment of our members, everything will be nothing if by next year, we are not in Government House.”
