Ize-Iyamu Congrats Gov Obaseki



Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the 2020 governorship election in Edo State on Monday congratulated Governor Godwin Obaseki on his victory at the Supreme Court.

Mr Ize-Iyamu in a letter to the governor said that the Friday’s judgment of the apex court has put an end to the series of litigations on the governorship poll that returned Mr Obaseki for second term.

The APC candidate, in the letter, asked Mr Obaseki to accept his congratulatory message since all the cases were over.

“For the record, your supporters had instituted 13 different pre-election cases against my deputy and I; all seeking to disqualify us from participating in the election.

“On our part, our party, the APC had only one case against (you) and your party.

“We also deliberately did not go to the Elections Tribunal, not because we did not have issues but because we felt it was better to allow you face the job at hand, more so as our party at the National level had congratulated you.

“We are happy that all these cases have come to an end. Now that it is all over, please accept my congratulations,” he said.

The APC gubernatorial flagbearer, however, appealed to the governor to consider the issue of 14 constituencies, which are without representation at the state House of Assembly since 2019.

He said though the matter is in court, the governor was in a vantage position to consider an out-of-court settlement of the issue, in the overall interest of our state.
