President Muhammadu Buhari has endorsed the governorship candidate of the party in the September 19 elections, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday.
The Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Malla Buni who led the Edo State APC Governorship Candidate to the President confirmed this.
Buni, who stated this while briefing State House correspondents after presenting the APC candidate to the President said that Buhari gave his blessings to the candidate.
Ize-Iyamu at the briefing debunked the allegation that 14 members-elect of the Edo State House of Assembly sat in his house on Thursday to impeach the Speaker of the House and elect a new one.
He reiterated that it was a falsehood being spread by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Also speaking at the briefing, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State described his Edo State counterpart and candidate of the PDP in the September elections, Godwin Obaseki, as a liability to the PDP. He further stated that Ize-Iyamu is contesting against a governor who failed most woefully.
