Gov Obaseki is my senior brother – Pastor Ize-Iyamu


The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has depicted the incubent Governor, Godwin Obaseki, as his senior brother.

Ize-Iyamu expressed this as he drew nearer to grasp Governor Obaseki during the peace meeting at the royal residence of Oba Ewuare II, in Benin, on Wednesday.

He said it would not be right for anybody to depict the September 19 governorship election as a ‘do or die’ affair, including that it is a family election.

He said there won’t be viciousness from the side of the APC supporters since they would be cautioned against taking part in such.

“I want to assure our father and all those present here that we on our part pledged to ensure that our supporters conduct themselves peacefully throughout the campaign and during the election.

“We’re going to talk to them. We’re going to pass this message that we have been given.

“And every campaign we do henceforth we’re going to take some time to talk to them to keep to the peace no matter what provocation they might talk about to ensure that there’s no violence.

“This election is a family one and it cannot be described as a do or die affair. We want to give them that assurance.

“I wanted to mention other one or two things but to respect what our father has said, let’s leave it at that. We want to assure His Majesty that we will not go against your advice.

“And I am going to shake or embrace His Excellency, Governor Obaseki, he is my serious brother I’ll gladly move to him and embrace him,” he said.
