Obaseki Symphatises With Buhari For Endorsing Ize-Iyamu

The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has  symphatised with President Muhammadu Buhari for his endorsement of All Progressives Congress(APC) governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Obaseki said it was disappointing and a dilemma that Buhari could endorse Ize-Iyamu despite facing trial for corruption to the tune of N700m.

Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki sympathised with Buhari over the endorsement.

A statement by Osagie said Buhari only endorsed Ize-Iyamu in the interest of APC.

 “President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday was confronted with a dilemma of no mean proportion, to raise the hand of Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the APC in the September 19 gubernatorial election taking place in Edo State.

“The President was constrained to carry out the action, which indeed was a dilemma. We sympathise with the President, who reluctantly handed the APC candidate, the party’s flag and unveiled him behind closed doors,” the statement reads.

Buhari had endorsed Ize-Iyamu during a meeting some leaders of the APC at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

At the meeting, the president had appealed to the party leaders to work towards Ize-Iyamu’s victory during the elections.

Obaseki and Ize-Iyamu are the leading contenders in the September 19 governorship election in the state.
