Orhionmwon, the home local government of the APC candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu on Saturday resolved that they will vote APC in the September 19, 2020 Edo governorship polls, so their son can govern Edo state.
Hon Patrick Aisowerien, the APC member representing the constituency at the National Assembly, Abuja disclosed this at the flagoff of the party campaigns at Abudu, the local government headquarters.
He said, "In Orhionmwon we are ready to deliver all the 12 wards to APC from Orhionmwon East to Orhionmwon South. i want to assure our National Leader, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and our son, the governor that will be sworn in on November 12,2020 that Orhionmwon will be 100 percent for the APC".
Aisowerien said Orhionmwon people toed this line because the PDP candidate elected on the APC platform failed to keep faith with all his promises to reconstruct the Benin-Abraka Road and complete the College of Education at Abudu.
Amplifying the position of Hon Aisowerien, State APC chairman, Col David Imuse Rtd said now is the right time for the local government to have one of its own as Edo Governor irrespective of their party affiliations.
He said, " All Orhionmwon should support Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu to be governor irrespective of political parties because now is the time for the area to have the Governor of Edo State".
With no single project credited to Governor Obaseki in all of the wards in the locality, Imuse declared that on September 19,2020 it behoves of all Orhionmwon voters to turn out en masse and vote APC so that Pastor Ize-Iyamu will become Governor.
After he introduced hus running mate, Mallam Gani Audu, the APC candidate, before presenting them with his manifesto, Simple Agenda said that from from the crowd alone he is confident that APC will win the September 19 vote in the area.
He said as a son of the soil, Orhionmwon should support his election so that the area can have a hospital, potable water, good roads, and other amenities, which the outgoing governor and PDP candidate failed to deliver.
He said these dividends of democracy were all contained in his manifesto, Simple Agenda which he spelt out to include programmes and policies on security and social welfare, Infrastructure development and urban renewal, Manpower development, Public private partnership, Leadership by example and Employment and Empowerment.
According to Pastor Ize-Iyamu, "I have gone through all of the 18 local governments in the state and everybody says they will vote APC. Let me assure you that by the Grace of God when I am sworn as Edo state Governor not when am elected the Benin-Abraka Road will be completed and the College of Education, Abudu will be quickly completed" #
