- Former governorship candidate of the PDP in Edo state pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has disclosed why the APC will lose in 2019 presidential election
- Pastor Ize-Iyamu declared that the APC-led federal government has failed Nigerians
- He, however, said Edo will become the PDP state, when the party wins in forthcoming election
Former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP ) in Edo state, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the party will return to power in 2019 general elections because the APC has failed to fulfill all it promised before the 2015 general elections.
The Nation reports that pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu told the party supporters in the state to come under a PDP government after the February 2019 general elections.
He made this known on Monday, January 29, when the state party leadership began a ‘Meet the people tour’ to the 18 local government areas of the state.
Ize-Iyamu also said the PDP will secure victory in 2019, its members must reconcile and forgive one another, reorganize and rededicate themselves to the values of the party.
According to him, ''Let us forgive ourselves. We made mistakes but we must reconcile. If we continue to quarrel, the unity we need to achieve victory in 2019 will not be there.
''We need to rededicate ourselves to the values and principles of the PDP. The moment you hear PDP has won in February, just know that Edo will become a PDP state.''
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Senator Sabi Abdullahi, the spokesman of the Senate, said that the APC has done very well since it took over power in 2015, contrary to comments by a Pentecostal pastor, Tunde Bakare that the party has failed Nigerians.
Senator Abdullahi said: ''Pastor Tunde Bakare is totally entitled to his opinion and he has voiced his opinion but as far as I am concerned, APC has not failed. The number of years we have spent, looking at the problems we met on the ground, I think we are doing very well in trying to get Nigeria back on track.''
