Ize-Iyamu declares interest in Edo 2024 gov poll



The 2020 Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has declared interest in running for the coming 2024 Governorship election in the state.

Ize-Iyamu made his intention to run for the number one position in the state known, under the platform of the APC on Wednesday, December 27, 2023.

According to the former Secretary to the State Government, he would stick with his previous SIMPLE agenda, which stands for Security, Infrastructure Development, Manpower Development, Public/Private Partnership, Leadership by example and Employment creation.

It would be recalled that Ize-Iyamu also contested for the position on the platform of the APC in 2020, but lost to Governor Godwin Obaseki, who ran on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.

However, his current declaration will make it the third time he will be contesting for the office of the governor in the Edo State.

Speaking during his declaration, the former SSG said: “Having served as Secretary to the State Government and a previous governorship candidate of the party, I possess the required experience to be governor.

“We lost the 2020 election because our leaders outside the state chose to vote against us.”
