Edo PDP guber aspirant denies EFCC arrest

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu Campaign Organization Friday denied the arrest by Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) as reported by some National Daily.

The campaign organization said, “our attention has been drawn to a false and wicked propaganda which has been circulating on social media that Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has been arrested by the EFCC.

“Ordinarily, we would not react to such rumour sponsored by political upstarts within and outside who are worried at the massive support our campaign is gaining among the people of Edo state, but because The Nation newspaper, which ought to be a responsible newspaper, published the false report in their today issue, we have decided to respond to prevent a false propaganda to be mistaken for fact.

“We wish to state unequivocally that Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was not called neither was he arrested by the EFCC because his hands are clean. ‎

“We call on all our teaming supporters across Edo state, especially the very conscious PDP delegates to disregard such news fabricated by those who through fear of the emergence of Ize-Iyamu and his eventual victory at the polls have made themselves captives of the unknown but continue to support us in a bid to vacate the APC from Edo state and begin a process of repositioning our state through transparent, effective and accountable governance that will improve the living standards and social wellbeing of our people. This is our priority and we would not entertain any distraction from those unprepared and unfit to lead in such a time as this.”
