The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has challenged the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Edo state governorship election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to present any positive comment made on him by the erstwhile National Chairman of his party, Adams Oshiomhole.
The PDP said its challenge was predicated on the statement credited to Ize-Iyamu who in an interview claimed that Oshiomhole also made some fair comments on him.
“Ize-Iyamu’s claims, that Oshiomhole did not speak from his heart when he went public on him, is completely defeatist as the former governor repeatedly stated that he bore full responsibility for the statements he made against the APC candidate.
“The PDP hereby challenges Ize Iyamu to make such positive comments by Oshiomhole public.
“Moreover, Ize-Iyamu must note that while he is seeking an unattainable cleansing in political purgatory, the people of Edo state have moved on in their irrevocable decision to continue to develop their state under the leadership of Governor Godwin Obaseki and nothing, not even the lies, propaganda, vindictiveness and selfish interests of APC and its leaders can change the course of victory for Governor Obaseki in the September election.”
