EDO 2016: Obaseki Steps Down For PDP's Ize-Iyamu
There was excitement in Benin, the Edo State capital, on Sunday as the governorship campaign took on a dramatic twist, and boost for the PDP candidate in the forthcoming election in that state.

The governorship candidate of the Accord Party, Dr. Don Pedro Obaseki announced that he is stepping down for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the September 10, 2016 election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Obaseki who is a younger brother to Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the All Progressives Party, said he is collapsing his entire political structure into the PDP, in support of Ize-Iyamu.

Dr. Obaseki, a veteran writer and university lecturer, said he decided to endorse Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu because he realised that he is the best candidate for the election.

He described Adams Oshiomhole and his brother, Godwin Obaseki as ‘betrayers and unworthy of trust’.

Ize-Iyamu and Governor Oshiomhole had earlier had a war of words when the PDP candidate during his campaign in Uromi, Esan North East Local Government Area of the state on Friday, vowed to probe the administration of the incumbent if elected.

Ize-Iyamu also challenged Oshiomhole to investigate the eight years he (Ize-Iyamu) spent in office as Chief of Staff and Secretary to the State Government.

According to him, “every kobo that has come to Edo State must be accounted for. That is his fear; that is why he can no longer sleep.”
Oshiomhole soon after, fired back, that the threat was laughable.

According to the governor, Ize-Iyamu and other PDP chieftains have to account for funds collected during the 2015 general elections.
