Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has commended the scintillating performance of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Osagie Ize-Iyamu at the recent governorship debate between him and the incumbent governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Godwin Obaseki. Ganduje, in a statement by his chief press secretary, Abba Anwar, commended Ize-Iyamu “for wrestling down” Obaseki in the debate organized by Channels Television for goverborship candidates contesting the September 19 poll.
According to Ganduje who is also the Chairman of the APC National Campaign Council for the election, “What transpired at the gubernatorial debate organised by Channels Television and other stakeholders, between our governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and PDP’s candidate Godwin Obaseki, shows that ours is issue-based process.”
He noted that “In all the areas discussed during the debate, it appears to all that our great party, APC is ready to take Edo state to higher levels. Our programmes in the areas of security, education, health and all other areas show that our party is determined to better the living condition of Edo people.”
Impressed by how Ize-Iyamu challenged the incumbent governor, Ganduje argued that APC’s Pastor Ize-Iyamu knows his onion, adding that, “Looking at the trend and manner in which the debate went on, it appears to all that APC is in top gear and determined to win the Saturday election.”
Ganduje assured Edo people that looking at the debate that took place between Ize-Iyamu and Obaseki, “…Edo will be saved from the clutches of underdevelopment and retardation.”
