Coast Clear For Ize-iyamu As Two APC Aspirants Step Down by ojikeebere12: 9:31pm On Jun 18, 2020
Osagie Ize-Iyamu, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2016 Edo election, is set to emerge candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the September 19 poll.

Ize-Iyamu, who lost to Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo, four years ago, is believed to have the backing of Adams Oshiomhole, suspended national chairman of the ruling party.

TheCable understands that Osaro Obazee, who contested a state assembly seat in 2019, and Pius Odubu, a former deputy governor of the state, have stepped down and endorsed Ize-Iyamu.

Before endorsing Ize-Iyamu, they were the remaining two aspirants in the race for the party’s governorship ticket.

Six aspirants had indicated interest in the June 22 governorship primary but only three were cleared.

Obaseki, Chris Ogiemwonyi, a former minister, and Matthew Iduoriyekemwen, two-term majority leader at the Edo assembly, were screened out of the gubernatorial race.

After his disqualification, Obaseki had resigned his membership of APC and held strategic meetings with Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP, and some governors of the opposition party.

He is expected to defect to the PDP any time soon. If that happens, Obaseki will end up swapping places with his old opponent: he as the PDP candidate and Ize-Iyamu as the APC candidate.

On Thursday, APC inaugurated the Edo election and appeal panels to conduct the party primary election which is now considered a walk over for Ize-Iyamu.

Abiola Ajimobi, acting national chairman, represented by Hillard Eta, national vice chairman, south-south, directed the committees to ensure the success of the the party’s flag bearer.

The seven-man election panel is headed by Hope Uzodinma, governor of Imo and Ajibola Bashiru, senate spokesman, is the secretary.

Moreover, they don't want to get caught up with the gazette thing.

Bro don't be suprised if Odubu ends up as the party candidate.. If by tomorrow Ize-Iyamu can't provide his proof of APC registration then the court will declare him ineligible to contest... Now that all the Candidates have steeped down for him. He will still support anybody that the party nominate in his place... I think Oshiomhole know that having Iyamu against APC is too dangerous the reason they brought him from PDP. Just Imagine Ize-Iyamu, Odubu, Oshiomhole, Obazee, and co join forces together and the Federal power in their favour, that will be too much for any candidate PDP will be presenting.

The gazette won't affect them.they are not going to hold a real direct primary,it will hold in just a few places.plus iyamu can step down instead for odubu

This is a welcome development. Even if those trying to tear the party apart succeeds in installing Giadom as the acting national chairman, they will have no choice than to nominate POI as the party candidate.

Obaseki is gone for good so the party has no other choice than to nominate and support the only aspirant that is still standing.

I personally feel Ize-Iyamu's candidacy is the reason Buhari is back-tracking. Just my thoughts o!

Oshiomhole has something against Odubu he hasn't said.
