Ize-Iyamu to declare for APC today in Benin ~ Truth Reporters

The People’sDemocratic Party (PDP) candidate in the 2016 Edo State governorship election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has declared that his is leaving the PDP to rejoin All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ize-Iyamu said he would formally resign from the PDP today with his numerous supporters ‘without malice or bitterness’.

In a resignation letter dated November 21, 2019, addressed to PDP state chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, which he signed along with several others, Ize-Iyamu thanked the leadership of the party, “for the opportunity to belong.”

He noted that his decision along with several PDP leaders from across the state to leave the party “was unanimous and was not an easy one, considering the warm relationship we have enjoyed with many members of the party.

“There are however, many compelling reasons that have necessitated this resolution but it would be uncharitable even to throw stones at a house we once inhabited.

“We wish to state for the records that our primary motivation in politics is to effectively represent our people in the political arena and ensure government policies and resources are for the betterment of our people,” Ize-Iyamu stated in the letter.

It would be recalled that Ize-Iyamu has been consulting and holding series of meetings with his loyalists many of whom have expressed concerns about certain developments in PDP.

His declaration for the APC may not be unconnected with the frosty relations between Governor Godwin Obaseki and APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
