Edo politics: Former PDP governorship Ize-Iyamu sets to dump PDP for APC

Former governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in Edo state, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has reportedly concluded plans to dump the PDP for the All Progressives Congress.

It will be recalled that the Ize-Iyamu was the governorship flagbearer of the PDP for the 2016 governorship election.

Before joining the PDP, the former secretary to the Edo state government during the administration of former governor Lucky Igbinedion left Adams Oshiomhole when it dawned on him that he would not support his ambition.

However, The Nation reports that Ize-Iyamu has finalised arrangement with the same Oshiomhole, who is now the national chairman of the APC to return back to his former party.

Ize-Iyamu was also quoted to have said he is joining the APC to secure the party’s governorship ticket in order to unseat Governor Godwin Obaseki.

There exists the likelihood that Oshiomole is planning to use Ize-Iyamu to fight the incumbent Obaseki who has signified his interest to run for second term in 2020.
