Edo 2020: Tinubu asks Oshiomhole to ‘energise’ Ize-Iyamu’s campaign
All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, has called on the immediate-past National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, to return to Edo State to ‘energise’ the campaign of the party’s governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Tinubu said this in a statement on Saturday while reacting to the dissolution of the National Working Committee by the President, President Muhammadu Buhari .
The former governor of Lagos State said, “In Edo, we must rally round our candidate Pastor Osagie Ize Iyamu. In this, Comrade Oshiomhole has a crucial role to play. I congratulate him for his equanimity and loyalty to the party and our President in accepting the dissolution of the NWC. I encourage him, now, to return to Edo State to energise the campaign for the election of Pastor Ize-Iyamu.”
Oshiomhole has been engaged in a battle with his successor, Governor Godwin Obaseki, who is seeking a second term in office.
