Some members of the Godwin Obaseki’s family have showed support for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the forth coming governorship election coming up on the19th September in Edo State.

The Obaseki family endorsed Ize-Iyamu on Saturday in a meeting at the APC’s candidate private residence in Benin.

Victor Obaseki, a cousin of Governor Obaseki, while speaking at the meeting, admitted that although Godwin Obaseki is a kin, he won’t be getting the support of the family.

He said: “I am here today in the company of my cousins to support Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, the executive governor, is our cousin.

Generally, The Obasekis have their own way of doing things; we are a different branch of faith, we are supporting our brother, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu with unalloyed support fully for him.

I have supported him before, and I would continue to support him, we would do all our campaigns for him without let or hindrance, fully from the bottom of our hearts.

On his part, Ize-Iyamu expressed his delight at the support of the Obaseki family, stressing that this serves as a confirmation of the poor administration that Obaseki has given to Edo state in the past four years.

He said: “Let me thank you for the endorsement. I have known some of you for many years and I am very happy that politics has not strained our relationship.

It is true as Osaro said that far away in New York, I had the opportunity of meeting with him and other Edolites, where I shared my ambition.
Osaro has been a good gentleman and humble man, and has always declared his support
.”
