On 4th May, 2020, all aspirants for the 2020 Edo APC Governorship ticket who subscribe to the ideals of the authentic Edo APC agreed that whosoever amongst us is chosen as the consensus candidate will be accepted, congratulated and supported to realise his ambition of providing purposeful leadership for our dear State.
In furtherance of that agreement and my abiding philosophy that ‘a man’s word must be his bond’, which is further reinforced by my loyalty to our great Party and absolute belief in Party supremacy, I hereby heartily congratulate my dear brother and friend, PASTOR OSAGIE IZE- IYAMU on his emergence as Edo Authentic APC consensus candidate yesterday.
I crave your indulgence to place it here on record that my dear brother PASTOR OSAGIE IZE- IYAMU and my humble self have a shared commitment and vision for accelerated development of our dear State anchored on purposeful and effective leadership, leveraging on the abundant human and natural resources in our dear State.
I therefore commit myself to helping my brother realise his ambition and aspiration which today becomes mine and to which I pledge my unflinching support.
I call on all members of the Ogiemwonyi Political Family and my teeming supporters to join me in providing the needed support for my dear brother’s (Pastor Osagie Ize- Iyamu) ambition and aspiration. The task of rescuing Edo at this time is more important than all political considerations and I know with our support, Pastor Osagie Ize- Iyamu will accomplish the task.
Once again,  congratulations my dear brother and friend, PASTOR OSAGIE IZE- IYAMU.
