Edo Isoko Development Union pledges support for Ize-Iyamu
A PDP gubernatorial aspirant, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has urged the electorate in Edo state to vote en mass for the Party, in the September 10 gubernatorial election and avoid being apolitical.
Addressing the Edo state Chapter of the Isoko Development Union, IDU in his residence in Benin, Wednesday he encouraged people with voters cards to participate in the forthcoming election without hesitation noting that many who had voters cards in the past elections did not vote.
A government that comes into power through minority votes he pointed out did not augur well for democracy, which was often based on majority rule. “Less than 50% of registered voters in the last election actually voted while many who were duly registered with cards refused to come out of their homes to vote”, he said.
While urging the Edo state electorate to come out en mass to vote on September 10, he assured them that every one’s vote would count.
He assured Isoko people resident in Benin and all other tribes that his government, if voted into power would treat all equally without discrimination saying: “wherever you live in Nigeria with comfort and happiness is your home”.
He also called on those who have not registered or collected their permanent voters cards to do so as this was their own way of not only ensuring good government but also contributing to the growth and development of Nigeria’s nascent democracy.
Speaking on behalf of the Isoko Development Union Mr. Ephraim Akeni pledged the support and solidarity of the group to the PDP gubernatorial aspirant noting that they’VE done their survey before becoming to the startling conclusion the he would be the next governor of the state.
