As blame game continues over the ill-fated exercise to pick a consensus governorship aspirant among the six aspirants loyal to the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, the Campaign Organization of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, one of the aspirants jostling for the party’s ticket ahead of the September 19 governorship election in Edo State, said it has uncovered plots by some paid agents to cause disaffection among them.
A statement on Saturday by his Campaign Organisation said “some persons have been paid to sponsor articles and other media contents against aspirants seeking the ticket of the All Progressives Congress, including the respected former Deputy Governor of Edo State, Dr. Pius Odubu, Engineer Chris Ogiemwonyi, and General Charles Airhiavbere (Rtd), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu among others”.
The campaign organization described the articles as “products of a campaign hatched by those seeking to cause disaffection and disunity amongst the aspirants who are jointly committed to the ultimate objective of returning Edo state back on the path of growth and development after four years of misadventure”. It alleged that “Some people, terrified of the camaraderie between the aspirants seeking to obtain the ticket of the All Progressives Congress, Edo State Chapter, have commissioned writers and other bloggers unknown to the Campaign Organization of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu to generate contents aimed at disparaging Edo APC aspirants” stressing that “Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu holds in the highest esteem, Dr. Pius Odubu, Engineer Chris Ogiemwonyi, General Charles Airhiavbere (Rtd) and the other aspirants and remains committed to the agreed accord amongst them”.Follow Us on Social Media
