Osagie Ize-Iyamu, a pastor, has emerged the consensus governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) faction of Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the party.

Ize-Iyamu, then candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), vied against Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state, in 2016.

He defected to the APC in December 2019. Oshiomhole is reportedly backing him for the APC governorship slot against Obaseki with whom he has been at loggerheads.

The pastor was reportedly picked as consensus candidate after a meeting with other aspirants and some party chieftains in Abuja on Tuesday night.

Ize-Iyamu was at the national secretariat of the APC to pick up his nomination form for the governorship primary election.

He was accompanied by five other aspirants who did not obtain a form for themselves.

Solomon Edebiri, Pius Odubu, Chris Ogiemwonyi, former deputy governor of Edo, and Charles Airhiavbere, a retired general, are among the aspirants that were previously seeking to fly the party’s flag.

The Edo governorship election is scheduled for September 19.
