Obaseki Family Endorses Ize-iyamu For Governorship by aguele(m): 12:47pm On Aug 01
Prominent members of the Obaseki family have endorsed and pledged their support for the candidate f the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, in the September 19 Edo Governorship election.

The endorsement of the APC candidate by the embattled Governor's family on Saturday in a meeting at Ize-Iyamu's private residence in Benin, completes a disappointing week for the PDP's candidate which saw numerous aides, appointees, and other government officials resign their positions to back Ize-Iyamu.

Victor Obaseki, a cousin of Governor Godwin Obaseki, while speaking at the meeting, admitted that although Godwin Obaseki is a kin, he won't be getting the support of the family.

He said :"I am here today in company of my cousins to support Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu."

"Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, the executive governor, is our cousin. Generally, The Obasekis have their own way of doing things; we are a different branch of faith, we are supporting our brother, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu with an unalloyed support fully for him. I have supported him before, and I would continue to support him, we would do all our campaigns for him without let or hindrance, fully from the bottom of our hearts."

On his part, Ize-Iyamu expressed his delight at the support of the Obaseki family, stressing that this serves as a confirmation of the poor administration that Godwin Obaseki has given to Edo state in the past four years.

He also praised the Obaseki family for not allowing sentiments becloud their judgement in their support for who is right to lead Edo state for the next four years.

"Let me thank you for the endorsement. I have known some of you for many years and I am very happy that politics has not strained our relationship."

"It is true as Osaro said that far away in New York, I had the opportunity of meeting with him and other Edolites, where I shared my ambition.
Osaro has been a good gentleman and humble man, and has always declared his support."

"He came out this morning to say, Godwin has not done well, and not because they answer the same surname, would continue to support him and go through the very poor performance that we have seen in the past four years."

"They will not allow the sentiments or even deceit of brotherhood make them vote for somebody they know is not qualified for a position."

Meanwhile

Edo: Ize-Iyamu laments rejection by APC govs as 2023 torrents spill

The All Progressives Congress in Edo State has suspended the formal flag-off of its Governorship campaign indefinitely, following alleged refusal by 14 out of 18 Governors elected on the platform of the party (names withheld) to endorse a future that is shrouded in a dense fog of uncertainty as the Candidate of the party in the September 19, Governorship election in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu continue to struggle through a significant logjam in his most ambitious and dangerous political endeavour.

Investigation revealed that the Governors decision to distance themselves from the Pastor Ize-Iyamu Campaign borders on the the alleged failure to carryout the directive of Yobe Governor, Mai-Mala Buni and Chairman of APC Caretaker/extra-ordinary Convention Committee directive to the warring factions of the party in Edo State to fuse their party structure into the leadership of Bar. Anselm Ojezua as part of peace deal after the APC National Executive Council (NEC) sacked the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party led by its former Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on June 25, 2020 after the crisis rocking the party attained its apex level ahead of the 2023 General election.

Speaking at a zoom meeting with sub-Coordinators of his Campaign recently, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, described attempt by the APC Governors to abandon him mid-way as distasteful and unfortunate.

A personal aide to Pastor Ize-Iyamu, hinted our Correspondent that his Principal almost broke down in tears while lamenting that he "is becoming home and dry as a result of the development.

“I am fully aware that about 14 APC Governors are not for us. The most worrisome aspect of it is that, they are neither hiding nor apologetic about why they are not supporting him".

According to the aide, the little that he (Ize-Iyamu) has achieved so far, is as a result of his one personal and the support of a popular Benin business Mongol and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

The source also quoted the Edo APC Governorship Candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, also blamed his travails on the national leader of APC, Mr Ahmed Bola Tinubu and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole over their unwillingness to reconcile with their formal allies including most of the APC northern Governors to have a change of heart and pave the way for the opposition party to full the gauntlet APC campaign as destructive trajectory created by preference of the 14 APC for the Candidate of the Peoples Democratic party in Edo State, Governor Godwin Obaseki, becomes glaring.

But Ize-Iyamu, according to the source, was however encouraged at the meeting not to concede defeat, despite the daunting challenges ahead of him including his inability to agree on a particular venue for the formal flag-off of his campaign.

No matter how one cuts and dices this development or others like it, it is most likely a sign there's fire on the mountain for Mr. Obaseki to have to deal with.

I still don't know who Obaseki'sbpolitical advisers are but one thing that is glaring is that they are the Governor's number one enemies.
A reasonable seating Governor doesn't fight his benefactors not until he has successfully won his re election.
I just pity the guy from the look of things he doesn't stand a good chance in this coming election.

At this rate, Godwin will soon depart from Obaseki and join POI.

Edo is not Abia state where people vote PDP despite abysmal performance in the state. Those party chieftains standing with Obaseki are just waiting to collect election mobilization fund. a.k.a Secondus loot. They have nothing to offer him. embarassed

Ize-iyamu has stricken a good deal with his loyalists in the erstwhile party and they are delivering POI at the polls.

With his SIMPLE agenda cheesy, he has shown more focus on the Edo people than diverting state funds to the belly of Abuja tax collectors. grin

When Obaseki was disqualified by APC screening panel he crawled to PDP and bought their ticket without shame.
Obaseki was APC governor for over 3 years, only to get PDP party ticket just after 1week of leaving APC. Armed with his dollars every PDP man standing started singing for the Messiah has arrived. There was no shame.
