The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has again appealed to eligible voters in the state to vote for the PDP in the September 28 governorship election, declaring that he is best equipped among those jostling for the coveted position.
Ize-Iyamu said that, having lived all his life in Edo State, he “knows the challenges confronting the State and how to address them.”
He spoke to critical stakeholders during flag stops at Umogun-Nokhua, Evboesi, Evboehigae and surrounding communities in Orhionwon local government area of the state in continuation of his campaign tour of the state.
He solicited their votes for the PDP, assuring that he would keep faith with all his electioneering promises.
According to him, “My interest in politics is not selfish but borne out of a desire to ensure that the commonwealth of the people is administered in the best possible way for the wellbeing of a greater number.
“I was born in Edo state. I schooled in Edo state. I worked in Edo state. I married from Edo state. My business is in Edo state. In fact, I have lived all my life in Edo state. To me, this means that I am completely committed to the prosperity of Edo state.”
Ize-Iyamu said, “I believe that we can make Edo better and greater than it is presently, so that our children can agree to live here and, in turn, help in contributing their own quota to the growth and development of our state.”
He stated further, “I ventured into politics because I am concerned about the situation of our state and the condition of our people; and that is because no matter the much you do as an individual, you can only scratch the surface.
“The only institution that has the capacity to contribute meaningfully to the welfare of many is the government. Government is the custodian of our commonwealth. So anybody with such passion like mine must be in government so that our commonwealth is used for the good of more people.”
He promised that he would make a better job of governing the state if given the mandate, assuring voters in the state that their votes would count if they turn out en masse early on Election Day to be accredited and cast their votes for him.
