In their desperate move to win the forthcoming governorship election in EDO STATE, some group of loosely PDP supporters have been posting all kinds of comments and pictures to discredit the present administration led by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. While majority of Edo people are firmly behind Obaseki’s candidature, pugnacious PDP chieftains are still battling to rehabilitate their candidate Pastor Ize-iyamu who was allegedly involved in #700million campaign fund during the Jonathan’s administration. Ize-iyamu was quoted to have said that the #700million was shared among the PDP state chairmen in each of the local government in Edo state. According to a statement credited to him, he said he took nothing out of the money. For me, that was a blatant lie. I find it complicated to understand why Ize-iyamu is being called a Pastor when he’s morally corrupt. I do not think he deserves that cognomen. How on earth would he exonerate himself from the sharing of the money when the money was allegedly paid to him directly. In a sane society Ize-iyamu wouldn’t have contemplated seeking for an elective position let alone candidate of a political party. His quest to win the forthcoming election is a tall ambition.
When one is trying to find the rationale behind some issues another ones will suffice. I’m reliably informed that Ize-iyamu is billed to visit Etsako East today in the continuation of his campaign tour. He’s fully aware that there’s no presence of PDP supporters in Etsako East. Therefore, he has budgeted #50million according to the information that I gathered to mobilise supporters mostly students of Uniben, Auchi Polytechnic and Ambrose Alli University just like what he did in AUCHI rally a few days ago. Part of these mobilisation monies had already been distributed in each ward of Etsako East local government. One of my good friends is a beneficiary. How the monies were arranged and distributed is attached below.
Ize-iyamu must be reminded that Edo people are wiser now and fully behind APC candidate Godwin Obaseki to continue after Oshiomhole’s tenure . Edo state will never go back to the hands of PDP. Edo people are enjoying the dividends of democracy brought about by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. And continuity is the way forward.
