Presenting Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, by Osehobo Ofure

I know Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is the kind of politician, all Edos and especially APC members, deserve and will delight to have as governor. He is the kind of person who will make the party and all Edo people proud as a governor.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu embodies the qualities required to excel as a governor. The Assistant Pastor in charge of Province 2, Christian social Responsibility, would rather listen than pontificate.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the farmer also knows that whether it’s raising livestock or presiding over a private business enterprise, working together is the best way to accomplish shared goals and come out the other side without bitterness or backbiting.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the family man, husband and father knows that working as state governor has a lot more to do with preparing the next generation for greater challenges. He knows to be a governor is more than achieving personal political success.

He’s in politics for a better long-term future, not better numbers in today’s polls, for good governance, quality leadership that will move Edo forward.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the former Secretary to Edo state government knows government policy-making process firsthand and inside-out. He won’t need a tutorial because he already understands what it takes to get things done in a State House

And he knows too that no matter how bold the claim, no one can do it alone. He is a party man to the core. Made by the party and for the party. He will respect the party.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is an aspirant who is collaborative. He takes the long view even when it’s unpopular in the here-and-now. And He knows that in a state as close-knit as Edo, today’s opponent could be tomorrow’s ally – so he prefers not to burn bridges.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu should be chosen as the Edo APC flagbearer because he is for a undiluted party with undiluted respect for leaders. He has the experience to know his own mind and the humility and empathy to know that what others think matters just as much.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu will work hard to help ensure that Edo’s economy is earnestly stimulated on the path of growth, Edo’s communities are safer, Edo’s budget is balanced, Edo’s public policies are sound and responsible and humane, Edo’s voice is heard in Abuja, Edo’s children get a world-class education, and their own children have the kind of career opportunities that make them think of how to make life better.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is for stronger families. He and his wife, Professor Idia, are gracious without being self-congratulatory. They are engaged without being condescending. They are hard-working to the very core. And they are Edo, through and through.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is for protection of Edo’s culture, traditions and values, with high regard for the most vulnerable and concern equally for the fit to live a better life. He is willing to put ego and personal agendas on the shelf to make tough choices for the common good.

That’s why I’m hoping that All Edo APC members will give Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu the APC ticket for the Edo2020 governorship elections as I have explained why the party should.
