Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday made passionate appeal to his Orhionmwon people to vote overwhelmingly for him on Saturday.

Ize-Iyamu made the appeal at the party’s final campaign tour of Orhionmwon Local Government Area, his LGA.

Speaking at separate rallies in Okogbo, Oza and Omolua Igbanke, Ize-Iyamu told the Orhionmwon people to see his governorship ambition as their own ambition and as such should commit themselves to voting for him, a hundred percent, because he is their son.

He stated that for the first time an indigene of Orhionmwon has the opportunity of becoming the governor of the state and that the people should strive to make it possible by their uncommon support.

According to him, this is an opportunity for the local government area to have one of their own in power to redress all the wrongs that have been done to it by successive administrations.

He lamented that despite Orhionmwon being the largest local government area in Edo State and that despite being an oil producing area and having the largest forest reserve in the state, there has never been substantial investment by government to improve the economic, infrastructure and human capital of the local government area.

He promised to bring development commensurate to the contribution of

Orhionmwon, adding that he was not seeking their support just because he is their own but also that he is best qualified and has the best plan for the state.

Speaking on behalf of the Enigie of the six autonomous clans of Igbanke, the chairman of the Igbanke Council of Enigie, HRH Isaac Ogbeiwi Uwaifo, said Ize-Iyamu is a son of Orhionmwon that they know and are proud of.

While assuring him of their support, Enogie Ogbeiwi Uwaifo led in a special prayer which, he said, is to ensure his success at the poll on Saturday.

The association of pastors of Igbanke also expressed their support for Ize-Iyamu as well as praying for him.

Earlier at Oza, the Odionza of Oza with his council of Elders had prayed for Ize-Iyamu, while assuring him of the support of Oza community.

Chief Dan Orbih, the PDP state chairman, who was in the campaign train joined Ize-Iyamu in the appeal for maximum home support, reminding them that Ize-Iyamu hails from Iguododo community in Orhionmwon Local Government Area.
