Former Edo state governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Pastor Ize-Iyamu, has said that he is yet to receive the endorsement from the topmost leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole, National leader Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and President Muhammadu Buhari to contest in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.

Ize-Iyamu said this while fielding questions from newsmen after picking the Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, Ize-Iyamu.

He said he is yet to meet with either of them, but noted that he only received the endorsement from seven other intending aspirants that stepped down for him.

Furthermore, the pastor endorsed the decision of the APC National Working Committee (NWC) to adopt direct pimaries, adding that Gov. Obaseki’s insistence on direct primaries is because he wants to manipulate it, arguing that direct mode of primaries is the best method under the current deadly health coronavirus pandemic.

More so, Ize-Iyamu said he is not a beneficiary of the crises between Governor Obaseki and the National Chairman and former governor of the state, Adams Oshiomhole, narrating how he made several attempts to wade into the crisis but the governor blocked him.
