*Erhahon: Ize-Iyamu Isn’t a stranger

Former Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Edo State, Comrade Godwin Erhahon has predicted that most ‘fair weather associates’ of the incumbent Governor of the State, Mr Godwin Obaseki will start to ‘avoid him like a Covid 19 patient’ in the wake of APC Governorship primary election in the State.

He alleged that Obaseki who is seeking re-election on the platform of APC derailed on his ill-motivated return journey to Edo government house even before his first anniversary as Governor.

Erhahon, former Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Edo State Council, disclosed this in a statement he signed and titled, “Bravo Edo APC guber Aspirants!” on Monday in Benin City in the wake of cacophonous agitation whether or not to adopt direct or indirect primaries mode in the nomination of Edo APC Governorship.

Erhahon who is also the pioneer Chairman of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) which later fused into APC along with All Nigerians Peoples party (ANPP), ACN and part of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in 2015 mega deal, stated that “though Pastor Ize-Iyamu returned from PDP to APC recently, he is not a stranger” to the APC.

According to Erhahon, “With habitually embittered Governor Obaseki, a born sadist and exclusionist, as his sole challenger in the primary , Pastor Ize-Iyamu is as sure as being APC candidate as an unopposed aspirant.
