Mr. Solomon Odemwingie, a former chairman of Ovia North East Local Government of Edo State has called on all members of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Edo State to bury the hatchet and throw their weight behind the candidature of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu who emerged the party’s flagbearer for the September 19, 2020, gubernatorial election in the State.

Odemwingie, who spoke in Benin, said the party needed to work together and guard against throwing away the “cake you already have in hand.”

According to him, Edo State will witness development if Ize-Iyamu is elected governor, the former local government boss told the party members that the disagreement between ex-National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Godwin Obaseki had been laid to rest.

He said: “We must all remember or know that the present is the funeral of the past. As things are today, the resignation of Obaseki from the APC has separated them politically. Politically or otherwise, the duo can be seen tomorrow on the same table with forks and knives. You and I will not be there. What happened between them is a chapter in the study of politics.

“Let us feel happy that a man who is a colossal presence in the politics of Edo State for very many years, one who is an inspirational icon and one who is a strong grassroots mobilizer, has been elected as APC candidate.”

Describing Ize-Iyamu as a garrison commander of Edo politics, Odemwingie said the APC candidate should be given the opportunity to implement his ‘Simple Agenda’.

This, he said, includes the construction of good roads, resuscitating Bendel Brewery, and Edo Line Transport Service.

According to him, Ize-Iyamu suffered electoral manipulation in the past and exhibited an exemplary attitude of peace and co-operation without taking the law into his hands.
