The people’s democratic party had earlier challenged the candidate of the All progressive Congress party “Pastor Osagie Ize-iyamu” to make public any positive comments made by the former national chairman “Adams Oshiomole”
The PDP said the comrade had previously stated that the pastor was unfit and fake for the office of a governor. The party in a statement released in Abuja and signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said its party’s opponent in the September 19 governorship election in Edo state has already been devastated by the public description of his person in Edo State.
The statement reads;
“It is already in the public domain that Oshiomhole, in his official capacity as governor of Edo state, declared and even swore before God and man that Ize-Iyamu is an impostor, a fake pastor, rusticated student, a career dropout, acid bath assailant, liar, treasury looter; an incompetent and questionable character, who is only good for night meetings and not fit to be the governor of Edo state, among other damaging testimonials.

Furthermore, Ize-Iyamu’s claims, that Oshiomhole did not speak from his heart when he went public on him, is completely defeatist as the former governor repeatedly stated that he bore full responsibility for the statements he made against the APC candidate. Our party notes that Ize-Iyamu is not pursuing any defamation case to disprove the former governor.
Instead, he is claiming that Oshiomhole also made certain fair comments on him. The PDP hereby challenges Ize Iyamu to make such positive comments by Oshiomhole public. Moreover, Ize-Iyamu must note that while he is seeking an unattainable cleansing in political purgatory, the people of Edo state have move on in their irrevocable decision to continue to develop their state under the leadership of Governor Godwin Obaseki and nothing, not even the lies, propaganda, vindictiveness and selfish interests of APC and its leaders can change the course of victory for Governor Obaseki in the September election.”
