BENIN/Nigeria: As the September 12, 2020 Governorship Election in Edo State gradually draws close, the Governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Dr. Isaiah Osifo, has called on Edo electorates to reject the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu whom he accused of having a criminal case.
The Labour Party candidate implore all Edo people to vote for a candidate that can improve their well-being and has abundant evidence of political administrative as well as academic credentials required for development.
The Labour Party candidate averred that Pastor Ize-Iyamu is disabled to contest the forthcoming election following his criminal trial in court.
The former Edo State Chief of staff disclosed this during a press conference adding, that it is the responsibility of political parties to enlighten the public by raising the level of political education in the State.
He further stated that APC is an operational definition of a party’s leadership that is not interested in morality. “APC definition of their best among its gubernatorial aspirants and the choice of a candidate that is undergoing criminal trials on money laundering is far from good politics and morality.
“This can only be a decision of a leadership that is not conscientious and the intention ultimately is to take Edo voters for granted.
“The act and intention of the choice of Edo State APC governorship candidate is morally reprehensible and disrespectful to the collective good conscience of all the good people of Edo State.
“The minimum Edo State people should ask for is to improve on the current level of verifiable developments in Edo State and vote for a candidate who has abundant evidence of political, administrative and academic credentials required for a reasonable and responsible development in Edo state,” he stated.
The press statement was jointly signed by the Edo state Chairman of the party Comrade Oghalol Kes, the National Secretary Barrister Abure Julius as well as the party’s candidate Dr. Isaiah Osifo.
