Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu: wins Edo APC direct primary by landslide

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has been declared winner of the direct governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress held Monday in Edo State.

Governor Hope Uzodinma, chairman of the Primary Election Committee, declared Ize-Iyamu winner, after results were collated in the 18 local government areas of the state.

Ize-Iyamu won by a large margin, scoring 27,838 votes.

His closest rival, Dr Pius Odubu, a former deputy governor scored 3,776 votes, while Mr Osaro Obaze got 2,751 votes.

Ize-Iyamu will now await the result of the PDP primary on 25 June, to know his main rival in the September 19 governorship election in the state.


  1. God said it and He’s confirmed it; Ize-Iyamu, is the next Governor of Edo State, IJMN.

  2. Iyamu, now that you’ve secured the golden ticket, start humbling yourself and learn from the mistakes of the outgoing Obaseki, and keep PDP in opposition status. From me to you, it’s good luck!
