APC vs PDP: Edo 2020 Gov’ship Election Latest News For July 7, 2020

As we countdown to the September 19 Edo State Governorship election, Naija News brings you the latest update before the D-Day.

Many political parties will be participating in the election but all attention would be on the candidates of the two major parties, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Edo Governorship election would serve as a litmus test for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) following the controversies that trailed the 2019 general election.

Below is a roundup of top stories on the Edo Governorship election

Ize-Iyamu: APC Stuck With Candidate Burdened By Image Problem – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that the Edo State Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has an image problem.

Naija News recalls that during the 2016 APC governorship campaign the former National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole alleged that Ize-Iyamu poured acid on a student while he was a student at the University of Benin and was subsequently expelled.

Reacting during an interview session in an online television programme on Sunday, Ize-Iyamu debunked the allegation and explained that contrary to what is in circulation, he drew the attention of the school‎ security and took the victim for first aid treatment.

Ize-Iyanmu, however, admitted to the claims that he was a member of the Pyrates Confraternity and a student union leader.

In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said the confession by Ize-Iyamu, is a vindication that he is unfit to hold office as governor of Edo state.

The governing party in Edo State noted that the expulsion by a panel, which, according to Oshiomhole, “was chaired by no less a person than the current Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, Prof. Itse Sagay, has put a permanent deficit on Ize-Iyamu as the APC candidate.”

The wealthy man who is known for his philanthropic debunked the report via his spokesman, Anthony Chiejina, who described the rumour as outright falsehood, a malicious, irresponsible and mischievous act aimed at destroying his image.

“Aliko Dangote is an entrepreneur and business leader whose focus is on development, job creation and philanthropy. He has not endorsed anyone for electoral positions in Edo or any other state of Nigeria.” Dangote Says

Speaking further, Dangote said he has not crossed the Lagos Third Mainland Bridge since that date. His name and personality should not be drawn into any political campaign.
