Governor Godwin Obaseki’s Special Assistant, Innocent Aboiralor, has backed the governorship ambition of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News reports that Roland Ekata, the Vice Chairman of Esan Central LGA also backed Pastor Ize-Iyamu for the Edo number one seat.
The duo declared the APC candidate as the best man to move Edo State forward.
Speaking to newsmen in Benin, Aboiralor, who hails from Ward 4, Esan North East LGA and Ekata said Obaseki would be humiliated in the forthcoming election.
They stated that Ize-Iyamu would be inaugurated come November 12, 2020.
Ekata said: “On June 22, I was forced by Obaseki to join the PDP, but I have not been able to sleep very well since then, because my conscience is worrying me. I am comfortable with the APC; this is where I will remain.
“My followers and I are ready to support Pastor Ize-Iyamu because he is the best governorship candidate in Edo State.”
He said the APC candidate is a grassroots politician, who is more popular and experienced that Obaseki.
According to Ekata, Ize-Iyamu would ensure good governance from November 12.
