The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Osagie Ize-Iyamu, in Edo, has stated that he is not desperate to become governor.
It will be recalled that Ize-Iyamu contested the governorship election in 2016 under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but lost to Godwin Obaseki, incumbent governor, who was the APC candidate but both of them have switched platforms for the 2020 election.
Speaking to journalists, Ize-Iyamu, disclosed that anyone who genuinely wants to lead the people dont need to be desperate for a position.
He said: “A man who genuinely wants to serve cannot be desperate. It is not compulsory that I should be the governor. If God wills, I will win. I assure you that if I lose the election, the worst that can happen is that I will go to court but I won’t resort to violence. We have warned our supporters against violence.
“Ours is a genuine roadmap to transform our state from its present unacceptable condition of underdevelopment to an attractive state with a vibrant economy.”
He assured Edo people of victory, assuring that he will go to court to seek redress and not resort to violence.
“What they are trying to do is to raise alarm so that voters will not come out to vote to enable them to write their result. We want to assure our people that there would be adequate security on election day. Let them come out to vote. We don’t need to resort to violence because we will win all the 18 local governments,” Ize-Iyamu said.
