The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has said that he is not shaken by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu participation in the state’s governorship election,.
Making this disclosure while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics Obaseki stated that he has no reason to be scared of Ize-Iyamu.
Ize-Iyamu contested the last governorship election under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), before defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He will now go up against Obaseki for APC’s ticket in the September 19 poll.
But the Governor insists he has no reason to be scared of Ize-Iyamu.
“Why should I be? The last time I contested, he (Ize-Iyamu) was my opponent from the PDP and the votes are there.
“I beat him (when I had no track record as a governor) and now with the track record as a governor, I don’t have any fears,” Obaseki said.
