Justice Aghamiojie of the High Court of Justice sitting in Benin City has just now ruled that Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is not a member of the APC.
The national working committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress(APC) chairmen recently said that Ize-Iyamu waiver is illegal.
“We the local government area party chairmen of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state wish to inform the general public for the avoidance of doubt that the purported agreement to return Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as a consensus candidate of APC in Edo state is totally false and without foundation,” they said.
“Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is not a member of our party. He led his followers out of the APC in 2014 and even contested the governorship election on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2016 election, which he lost.
“The truth is that Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu recently joined the Edo Peoples Movement (EPM), which is a group organized by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to destabilise APC in Edo State, they said.
