The call for the rejection of the PDP and its candidate in the forthcoming Edo governorship election was loud on Wednesday with the declaration of support for the APC candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu by the people of Etsako East and Central local government areas respectively.
The voice of the people of the areas was clearer after they heard Pastor Ize-Iyamu reel out the many good things contained in his manifesto, Simple Agenda coming to them and the generality of Edo state when he takes office as governor.
Mounting the podium at Agenebode and Ekperi, the APC candidate applauded the people for honoring former the APC National chairman, Comrade Oshiomhole, his running mate, Mallam Gani Audu and other party chieftains, with their presence despite the disappointment recorded so far from the Obaseki government.
He promised the people that his government will be different from the outgoing governor’s in terms of performance because with his SIMPLE Agenda and by the grace of God, "we will continue with the beautiful legacies of the former governor of Edo state, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole".
Ize-Iyamu mentioned that his agenda srood for SECURITY/SOCIAL WELFARE, INFRASTRUCTURAL DEVELOPMENT, MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT
to PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP then LEADERSHIP BY EXAMPLE and EMPLOYMENT/EMPOWERMENT.
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu promised to provide jobs for Edo youths and empower the women with microcredit to boost their businesses as he appealed to them to vote APC come September 19th, 2020, the judgement day to repay Obaseki for the wrongs he meted to Edo people.
At Ekperi, former Governor of the state and immediate past National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole recalled some of his achievements in the local government area such as the road linking Ekperi to Anegbette.
He said he had promised four years ago that Obaseki will construct more roads in the spirit of continuity but sadly, he failed hence the APC choose Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and Mallam Gani Audu so, *we can restore good governance and not use propaganda to hoodwink the people".
