Cases Against Obaseki’s Election Can Now Die For Good – Ize-Iyamu

Chief Osagie Ize-Iyamu has come out to congratulate Governor Godwin Obaseki on his victory at the Supreme Court.

He recently revealed this via a letter to the governor, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, Friday’s judgment of the apex court has definitely ended the various litigations on the governorship poll that returned Obaseki for a second term for good.

Iyamu added that he deliberately did not go to the Elections Tribunal, not because there were no issues to thrash out, but because he felt it was better to let Obaseki face the job at hand.

His words, “For the records, Your Excellency, your supporters had instituted 13 different pre-election cases against my deputy and I; all seeking to disqualify us from participating in the election.”

“On our part, our party, the APC had only one case against Your Excellency and your party.”

“We also deliberately did not go to the Elections Tribunal, not because we did not have issues but because we felt it was better to allow you to face the job at hand, more so as our party at the National level had congratulated you.”

“We are happy that all these cases have come to an end. Now that it is all over, please accept my congratulations.”

“Having said that, I want to appeal to you to kindly consider the pertinent issues of the 14 constituencies, including the two in your local government – Oredo and the two in your deputy’s local government – Etsako West, that are presently without representation at the Edo State Assembly.”

“Though the matter is in court, you are in a vantage position to consider an out-of-court settlement of the issue, in the overall interest of our state.”

“Your Excellency would also do well to intervene in the issue of elected Local Government Chairmen, Vice-chairmen, Councilors and Supervisory Councillors, who some time ago, were suspended and removed from office.”

“Our appeal is that you consider paying them their entitlements since it is now late for them to return to their offices.”

“This can also be through the out-of-court settlement.”

“Your Excellency, for us in the APC, as the opposition party in the state, we have a duty to ensure that your government does the right thing always.”
