Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the last governorship election, in Edo State, has appealed to the winner of the election, Governor Godwin Obaseki to return to the APC.
Speaking in a television broadcast on Wednesday, Ize-Iyamu said the party wants to bring everybody back including the governor so they can all work together and bring peace back to Edo State.
“We are going to talk to everybody. We are going to bring everybody back. I want to salute my brother, the governor. I would like to appeal to him to return to the party. In every family, we have a disagreement,” he said.
“I made that mistake before and I have come to realise that it was a grievous error and I will not want him as a senior brother to make the same mistake.
“I will like to appeal to him to set aside his anger and come back. In APC, he is recognised as a leader and it would be difficult for him to be recognised as a leader in the new party he is going to.
“Certainly, we are ready to work with him and all well-meaning Edo people. We believe it is time to bring peace back to Edo State,” he added.
