With less than four months into the governorship election in Edo, the rancour in the All Progressive Congressive Congress (APC) chapter of the state seems to be growing in wings more than imagined.
The manifestation of the brewing crisis was clearly shown after Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, governorship aspirant of APC, said those who brought the incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki, have the right to look into an alternative way.
Speaking on Channels TV on Wednesday, May 27, after hitting the re-election bid of the incumbent governor on the first rock with his victory in Abuja, Ize-Iyamu said the rift between Obaseki and Oshiomhole is a personal feud.
He further maintained that Oshiomhole, however, remains the national president of APC and his personal feud with the incumbent governor does not change the reality and the respect accorded to his office.
Ize-Iyamu, who lost to Obaseki in the 2016 guber election in Edo, also berated the governor for saying power belongs to God after insisting that his second term is non-negotiable.
The governorship aspirant said that if elected, there will be a change to the status quo because people of Edo state are tired of the present administration.
He described the pace of development in the state as the one that the people are not pleased with, adding that he will try to seek the support of the national leaders of the party and in Edo state.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Ize-Iyamu said that he is yet to receive the endorsement from some key party chieftains as alleged in some quarters.
The frontline aspirant said the trio of the APC national chairman Oshiomhole, national leader Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and President Muhammadu Buhari have not endorsed him to contest the election.
