The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has released a statement following his defeat at the just-concluded Edo governorship election.
Ize-Iyamu lost to the incumbent governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Godwin Obaseki.
Obaseki polled a total number of 307,955 to defeat his main challenger, Ize-Iyamu who scored 223,619.
Recall that after collating and sorting of the election results, the electoral umpire declared that Obaseki won 13 local governments out of the 18 local government areas of the state.
In his official reaction after INEC’s declaration, Ize-Iyamu thanked and appreciated his supporters for their support and determination during the election just as he claimed that they “had to endure many evils including being prevented from voting”.
