Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, has cleared the air on claims that Adams Oshiomhole, a former Nationwide Chairman of the celebration, has taken over his marketing campaign.
Ize-Iyamu mentioned that the Peoples Democratic Social gathering, PDP, must be blamed for viral movies and feedback of Oshiomhole in public locations.
The APC candidate mentioned that Oshiomhole will not be the face of his election, including that it was the PDP that “retains mentioning his identify and speaking about him and taking part in his tapes as if he’s the candidate.”
Addressing the press in Benin, the Edo State capital on Saturday, Ize-Iyamu mentioned, “Let me first inform you that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole will not be the face of the election. As you already know, I’m the gubernatorial candidate and Mallam Gani Audu is the deputy.
“It’s the PDP that retains mentioning his identify and speaking about him and taking part in his tapes as if he’s the candidate.
“However I need to inform you that I’m very well-known in Edo the place I’ve lived all my life. I used to be the Chief of Employees and Secretary to the Authorities.
“After all, Adams Oshiomhole comes from Edo and he’s an APC member. So it’s pure for him to marketing campaign for us.”
Recall that the All Progressives Congress, APC, Progressive Governors Discussion board, PGF, had cautioned Oshiomhole over his involvement within the governorship marketing campaign.
PGF mentioned Oshiomhole shouldn’t lead the APC governorship marketing campaign in Edo State.
Urging the previous APC Nationwide Chairman to “settle down”, PGF mentioned the celebration’s governorship candidate in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu must be allowed to steer his personal marketing campaign.
