Pastor Ize-Iyamu Withdraws From PDP Guber Race
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu
2020 Edo State Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has announced his withdrawal from the APC Governorship ticket race in Edo State.

Ize-Iyamu disclosed his withdrawal from the race, less than 24 hours before the gubernatorial primary of the party in Edo State, through a letter he addressed to the National Chairman of the party, Abdullahi Ganduje.

Although Pastor Ize-Iyamu claims his withdrawal was influenced by his consultation, The Round Table understands it could not be unconnected with speculations that the hierarchies of the party, at both national and state levels, have settled for the Governorship candidate backed by the former Governor of the State and former National Chairman of the party, Senator Adams Oshiomole, who is currently a member of House of Representatives Ovia Federal Constituency, Dennis Idahosa.

Pastor Ize-Iyamu's withdrawal letter read:

“A few months ago, after extensively interacting with family, friends, political assonates, and supporters, I joined the 2024 Edo state gubernatorial race as a result of my passion and commitment to the cause of rescuing Edo state from the current condition of decrepitude.

“I entered the contest as a progressive democrat, with an open mind to keenly contest and accept the result of a process that is fair, credible, and transparent. I appreciate the commended the effort made by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC to correct the erroneous impression maliciously created by certain persons that some aspirants, including myself, had been disqualified from the gubernatorial contest.

"The NWC constituted the authentic screening committee and all twelve aspirants who purchased and completed the nomination forms were successfully screened and subsequently issued clearance certificates. This step was praiseworthy and helped in restoring our integrity in the eyes of the public.

“Having been cleared to contest, I regrettably wish to announce my withdrawal from the race. Although painful, this decision has become imperative after an exhaustive consultation with my family, friends, political associates, and supporters. I make this sacrifice in the interest of the peace and unity that the party desperately requires at both state and national levels.

“I humbly appeal to the good people of Edo state to accept my decision which I very personal and I promise to be there for them at all times.

“Thankfully, I acknowledge the fatherly role of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, as well as the party’s National leadership for the fairness and commitment to the democratic process. Likewise, I remain grateful to the state working committee for their principled stand to allow a level playing field for all aspirants. I am extremely appreciative to my family, friends, supporters, well-wishers, and the extraordinary hardworking men and women of our campaign organization who were prepared to stop at nothing to see me fly the party’s flag. I salute your great works, your steadfastness, and your courage.

“Finally, as a loyal party man, I wish to pledge that I and my teeming supporters shall support any candidate that emerges in the primary election held tomorrow.”
