Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, was running from the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) when he emerged Governor.
Oshiomhole was reacting to Ize-Iyamu’s statement that he was instrumental to the Governor’s election in 2007.
The Governor stated this during a campaign rally for the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the forthcoming Edo governorship election, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, which was held at Garrick Memorial College in Oredo Local Government Area of the state.
“Check the records; on April 14, during my election, Ize-Iyamu was in hiding from the EFCC. How can somebody who didn’t vote claim that he made me?,” Oshiomhole said.
“We have worked for our country. We made our name; we are not tied to anybody. We simply worked and fought poverty and fought for the people.”
He assured workers that he will continue to prioritise their welfare, saying he will pay pension arrears before the end of his tenure in November.
Oshiomhole urged the people to send the PDP in Edo state back to obscurity with their Permanent Voter Cards on September 10.
