*The Simple Agenda: The Manifesto of Hope

*He is a direct descendant of Chief Odia, Iyase n’ohenmwen to Oba Osemwende who hailed from Iguododo in Orhionmwon Local Government Area.He was known in his days as the most loyal and reliable Iyase of Benin Kingdom (Prime Minister). Chief Iyamu, his great grandfather, who was the Inneh of Benin, built the first storey building in Midwest Region (Egedege N’okaro) in 1906. His father, his grandson, Chief Robert Osayande Ize-Iyamu, Esogban of Benin Kingdom, in 1984 donated one of his houses at No. 32 Erie Street, Benin City to be used as the secretariat of the Movement for the Creation of Edo State which was chaired by His Royal Majesty, the Oba of Benin, Oba Erediauwa.He attended Ebenezer Primary School, Benin City from where he proceeded to Edo College, Benin City and later, the prestigious University of Benin where I obtained a degree in Law. Thereafter, he attended the Nigerian Law School, Lagos and was called to the Nigerian Bar. I am a Pastor, Farmer and Businessman. He is happily married with four children.He has been privileged to serve the state as Special Assistant to the Chairman of the old Oredo Local Government Council (Oredo, Egor and Ikpoba Okha) from 1988 to 1989, Chief of Staff to the Governor, 1999 to 2003 and Secretary to Edo State Government from 2003 to 2007.These positions, which he held creditably and without blemish, have given him a unique insight into the workings of government. Indeed, he is acutely aware of the importance of electing an experienced and competent state Chief Executive who would stay focused on the discharge of his duties. That is why, Pastor Dr. Osagie Ize-Iyamu Esq., seek your mandate by contesting for the post of the Governor of Edo State.He is of the strong conviction that our greater tomorrow, the future upon which we rest our hope, is now. The road ahead will be long, but with God’s grace upon us, no matter the challenges that may accompany this journey; we shall fix our eyes on that horizon.God’s time is now, as such, Edo Must Move Forward. He is willing, able and READY!#TheSimpleAgenda
