He said, “the construction of participants of the APC in their last- min as well as determined initiatives to conserve an undesirable prospect, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, from giving up the governorship race which the party is set to lose.
“With just a week to the September 19 election, and worried by the lack of acceptance of its candidate, the APC has resorted to desperate and unconventional campaign tactics; fake news, deceit and falsehood, to attempt to sway Edo voters.”
“For focus, the chairman of the PDP in Edo State, Dr Tony Aziegbemi, has actually not surrendered from the PDP. He is dedicated to leading the party to victory on September 19, with the party’s prospect, Governor Godwin Obaseki.
“Edo people should ignore the shenanigans of the APC and come out en masse to reelect the PDP candidate, on Election Day.”
Reacting to Osagie’s assault on the APC as well as its governorship prospect, Ize-Iyamu, the Chairman, Edo State APC Media Campaign Committee, John Mayaki, said he was not mindful of the rumoured resignation.
He said, “I am not aware of his resignation. He has no need to resign if you ask me. However, he will go down in history as a party chairman that couldn’t deliver his candidate to victory.”
“For our victory to be memorable, we need to beat someone and he’s one of those that will cry the morning after September 19 alongside Godwin Obaseki.”
However, the apc as well as the pdp are set for the honest political election in the state as the people of Edo State go to the survey to establish that’ll lead the state for one more duration of 4 years.
