Edo Election: Gov Wike slams Pastor Ize-Iyamu, reveals why he lost to Obaseki in 2016

The political battle in Edo State is getting intense as Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has slammed Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate.

Wike alleged that Ize-Iyamu lost to Governor Godwin Obaseki in the 2016 governorship election in Edo State because the people saw that he ‘would not be a good leader’.

Recall that Ize-Iyamu, who contested on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, four years ago was defeated by Obaseki who was the APC candidate then.

However, Wike, in a tweet on his official Twitter handle on Wednesday, also said that the Edo election is not an ‘Obaseki election’ but for the people of the South-South.

He said: “There would be no intimidation in the Edo election, the people must choose who they want.

“Edo people rejected Ize Iyamu in the last election because they saw he wouldn’t be a good Governor.

“Edo election is not an Obaseki election but for the people of the South-South.

“It is time for the South-South to speak with one voice.”
