Mr Osagie Ize-Iyamu, an All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirant for Edo governorship, has picked the expression of interest and nomination forms to enable him to contest in the primary scheduled for June 22.
Ize-Iyamu who bought the forms at the cost of N22.5 million at the party’s National Secretariat Abuja, on Wednesday, promised to address the insecurity and slow pace of development in Edo, if elected.
“I have sat down with experts and we have articulated the roadmap which I call the “Simple Agenda.”
“It is a realistic document and by the grace of God, the moment we enter office, we will begin to implement it,” he said.
“In this election that is coming up, many of them wanted to contest; many of them were prevailed upon to contest because of existing situations.
According to him, that process of having a consensus aspirant among them has been on for quite a while.
The aspirant said that some people had even thought that agreement could not work, but added that because of the caliber of those involved, it had worked.
“Some of them are here but one or two had to leave because of other engagements,” he said. (NAN)
