The State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chris Nehikhare Monday revealed this recently.
According to him, the allegation by Ize-Iyamu that the election was filled with violence are very false and should not be taken seriously.
He added that Ize-Iyamu should respect the wishes, views, and decisions of Edo residents since the state has always been kind to him.
His words, “The defeated APC candidate stated that the election, which has been adjudged as one of the best in the history of the country, was characterized by violence, manipulation, disenfranchisement amongst others, but will not challenge it. We reject and condemn his jaundiced position on the election and which to advice him to show respect to the wishes of Edo people. He should respect their views and decisions as Edo have been very kind to him!”
“Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu should know that he cannot retrieve what he lost at the polls at the court.
“The PDP, Governor Godwin Obaseki and the Edo people are waiting for him.”
“The reality is that Edo has been reset and all hands are needed to sustain the gains of the last four years and move the state to greater heights.”
