Ahead of the fast approaching governorship election in Edo State scheduled for September 19, President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday endorsed the candidature of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu to fly the flag of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the ruling APC, Mai Malla Buni who disclosed this while briefing State House correspondents after presenting the APC candidate to the President said that Buhari had given his blessings to the party’s flag bearer.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu at the briefing debunked the allegation that 14 members-elect of the Edo State House of Assembly sat in his house on Thursday to impeach the Speaker of the House and elect new one.
He said, “Let me debunk the statement that 17 members of the State House of Assembly sat in my sitting room, it is not true.”
He also said that there was no truth in the insinuations that President Buhari did not want to see him, alleging that it was a falsehood being spread by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
