Edo Election: I Sympathise With Buhari For Endorsing Ize-iyamu – Obaseki
The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has reacted to the endorsement of Osagie Ize-Iyamu, All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki sympathized with Buhari over the endorsement.
A statement by Osagie said Buhari only endorsed Ize-Iyamu in the interest of APC.
“President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday was confronted with a dilemma of no mean proportion, to raise the hand of Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the APC in the September 19 gubernatorial election taking place in Edo State.
“The President was constrained to carry out the action, which indeed was a dilemma.
“We sympathise with the President, who reluctantly handed the APC candidate, the party’s flag and unveiled him behind closed doors.”
Buhari had endorsed Ize-Iyamu during a meeting with some leaders of the APC at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
At the meeting, the president had appealed to the party leaders to work towards Ize-Iyamu’s victory during the elections.
Obaseki and Ize-Iyamu are the leading contenders in the September 19 governorship election in the state.
