The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, on Thursday shutdown his entire campaign ahead of the September 19 election.
The decision was disclosed in a statement signed by the chairman of the Edo state APC media campaign council, John Mayaki.
“This is to thank all the citizens of Edo State at home and abroad for your solidarity and to announce that the Edo State All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council and the Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu Campaign Organisation will close its campaign for the Office of the Governor of Edo State by 10PM on Thursday, 17 September 2020.”
“We are overwhelmed by the massive support, the plethora of endorsements, the approval and reception of our SIMPLE agenda, and the valiant spirit of Edo people, which we encountered in all the 192 wards of our powerful state. With all your support and participation, we are assured that our candidate will commence the good work of reinstating democracy and resurrecting Edo state as soon as possible.”
“The public is hereby enjoined to disregard any campaign-related material that may purport to come from our council, and we encourage the good people of Edo to remain vigilant, safe, dogged and unyielding to oppression as the election draws closer.”
