The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has called on the immediate-past National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, to return to Edo State to ‘energise’ the campaign of the party’s governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Tinubu stated this in a statement on Saturday while reacting to the dissolution of the National Working Committee by the President, Maj.Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
The former governor of Lagos State said:
“In Edo, we must rally round our candidate Pastor Osagie Ize Iyamu. In this, Comrade Oshiomhole has a crucial role to play. I congratulate him for his equanimity and loyalty to the party and our President in accepting the dissolution of the NWC. I encourage him, now, to return to Edo State to energise the campaign for the election of Pastor Ize-Iyamu.”
Ize-Iyamu will be going up against incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki, who is seeking a second term in office under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
