Ize-Iyamu Takes Campaign to Three Etsako LGAs

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the Edo 2020 Governorship election has taken his campaign to all the councils in Etsako.

The APC candidate rolled out the developmental plans contained in his SIMPLE Agenda to the people in Etsako West and Etsako Central Local Government councils of the state.

Speaking at Ugbekpe-Ekperi and Auchi in Etsako West and Etsako central councils, respectively, Ize-Iyamu applauded the people for their warm reception.

The campaign also reached Agenebode, in Etsako East.

Ize-Iyamu promised that his government would be different from the present administration of the state in terms of performance.

The governorship candidate pledged to pursue his SIMPLE Agenda to build on the legacies of the former governor of Edo, Adams Oshiomhole.

Ize-Iyamu also promised to provide jobs for Edo youths and empower women with micro credit to boost their businesses.

He added that he would provide lasting solution to the flood and security problems in the councils.

At Ekperi, Adams Oshiomhole who was on the campaign train, recalled some of his achievements in the Local Government Area such as the road linking Ekperi to Anegbette.

He said he had promised four years ago that Gov. Godwin Obaseki, now of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would construct more roads in the spirit of continuity.

He said Obaseki failed to do so.

At Auchi, Oshiomhole told the people that the APC choice of Ize-Iyamu and Mallam Gani Audu as running mate was a better choice for Edo people.

“We can restore good governance and not use propaganda to deceive the people,” Oshiomole said.

Campaign train touched down in Etsako East LGA on Wednesday with the party’s candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and party leaders spreading the message of the SIMPLE Agenda to the Palace of the Traditional ruler and inhabitants of Agenebode, its headquarters.

At the palace of the Okumagbe of Weppa Wano, HRH George Egabor Omoze I could not hide his happiness as Pastor Ize-Iyamu paid him homage and gave him copies of his Manifesto, the Simple Agenda as he called him, ‘’My Son in whom I am pleased.”

He blessed the APC candidate and declared: “I pray for you that God protects you and God gives you what you want…we pray that God will make what you are aspiring for to come true – that is our prayer.”

The Okumagbe went down memory lane to recall how much his community and the Etsako East local government benefited from the Edo State Government when Pastor Ize-Iyamu served first as Chief of Staff and later as Secretary to the State Government.

“All the things we have here today I got them while he (Ize-Iyamu) was in government: the High Court, College of Agriculture, a transformer in front of my house (palace), my appointment as Chairman/Governing Council of Usman Dan Fodio University (Sokoto), College of Education-Ekiadolor and Usen; that was when he was in government.”

Pastor Ize-Iyamu while presenting his Simple Agenda to the monarch whom he described as one who is passionate about development like himself added that Agenebode occupied a strategic position and its potentials have not been fully exploited to move Edo forward.
