The Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the forthcoming election in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has called on the Governor of the State, Godwin Obaseki, who recently defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to sheathe his sword and return to the APC, Page 36 learnt.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu made the appeal on Monday, in Benin City, the Edo State capital, after he emerged as the Governorship Candidate of the APC, for the September 19, 2020, poll in the State.
According to him, Governor Obaseki should “set aside his anger” and return to the APC, adding that, it will be a mistake for him (Obaseki) to leave the party.
He argued that there are bound to be issues in “every family”, and that it would be bad for Obaseki to leave the APC, due to some disagreements.
“I will like to appeal to him to return to the party.
“In every family, you have disagreements; let it not be said that it was this disagreement that pushed him out.”
He added that he made “that mistake before, and I have come to realise it was a grievous error, and I would not want him as an elder brother to make the same mistake”.
Furthermore, he said that Obaseki’s defection to the PDP is not the best choice, assuring that he would work with him (Obaseki) for the betterment of Edo State, if he returns.
“It would be nice for him to come back, and we are ready to work with him and all well-meaning Edo people.”
