Edo Gov Obaseki Sympathise With President Buhari For Endorsing Guber Candidate Ize-Iyamu

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has reacted to the endorsement of Osagie Ize-Iyamu, All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Obaseki said it was disappointing and a dilemma that Buhari could endorse Ize-Iyamu despite facing trial for corruption to the tune of N700m.

Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki sympathised with Buhari over the endorsement.

A statement by Osagie said Buhari only endorsed Ize-Iyamu in the interest of APC.

The statement reads: “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 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.
