The candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the last governorship election, in Edo State Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has appealed to the winner of the election, Governor Godwin Obaseki, to return to the APC.

This was said by Ize-Iyamu during a television broadcast on Wednesday night.

His words were:
“We are going to talk to everybody. We are going to bring everybody back. I want to salute my brother, the Governor. I would like to appeal to him to return to the party. In every family, we have a disagreement,” he said.

The APC candidate said he does not want the Governor, Obaeki whom he described as his senior brother, to make the same mistake (Ize-Iyamu).

“I made that mistake before, and I have come to realize that it was a grievous error, and I will not want him as a senior brother to make the same mistake.

“I will like to appeal to him to set aside his anger and come back. In APC, he is recognized as a leader, and it would be difficult for him to be recognized as a leader in the new party he is going to.

Indeed, we are ready to work with him and all well-meaning Edo people. We believe it is time to bring peace back to Edo State,” he added.

Ize-Iyamu was defeated by Godwin Obaseki of APC in the Saturday governorship election, according to the result announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
