Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has congratulated Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu following his victory at the Edo State PDP Primary election which held on Monday at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.
This was contained in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Charles Ehiedu Aniagwu, wherein the Governor described the emergence of Ize-Iyamu, a former Secretary to the Edo State Government as “well deserved”.
Governor Okowa praised the resilience of Pastor Ize-Iyamu who polled 584 votes to beat his closest rival, Hon. Mathew Iduoriyekemwen who got 91 votes, while Dr. Solomon Edebiri scored 38 votes.
The Governor commended the Electoral Panel for the peaceful conduct of the election while assuring the people of Edo State that as members of one family, he will be involved in the PDP campaign which will usher in a progressive and development-oriented government in Edo State.
According to him, “I thank God that I witnessed this election today, the organizers of the primaries promised free and fair elections, I am so glad because a candidate has emerged through a very acceptable process and it will make the work easier.”
“For the government and all of us in Delta State, we promise you our support; with the one spirit I am seeing in us today, we will win the elections come September,” Governor Okowa said.
