In today’s Cover, Pastor Osagie Ize- Iyamu has emerged as a consensus candidate from the Oshiomhole’s faction that will battle for the All Progressives Party’s ticket with the incumbent Governor Godwin Obaseki in the main primaries slated for June 22.
The former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2016 election in Edo, who defected to the APC in 2019, has been facing stiff opposition since his return. He has, however, been receiving the needed support from the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, for the converted position. Thin red line because this is the last battle Obaseki has to fight against Oshiomohle if he will remain in the APC.
It’s been a hide and seek battle and now he knows the opponent. If he cannot win, he will be forced to leave for PDP who have no candidate so far.
