Edo 2024: Ize-Iyamu joins race


A former Secretary to the State Government of Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has declared to join the 2024 governorship race in the state.

Ize-Iyamu declared his intention to run on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) again on Wednesday.

The former SSG said he would stick with his previous SIMPLE agenda, which stands for Security, Infrastructure Development, Manpower Development, Public/Private Partnership, Leadership by example and Employment creation.

His current declaration makes it the third shot at the Edo governorship office.

In 2020, he ran on the platform of the APC but lost to Governor Godwin Obaseki, who ran on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Speaking during his declaration, he said: “Having served as Secretary to the State Government and a previous governorship candidate of the party, I possess the required experience to be governor.

“We lost the 2020 election because our leaders outside the state chose to vote against us.”
