The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship contender for the Edo State political race hanging on Saturday, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has guaranteed that the officeholder, Governor Godwin Obaseki, just gave N100,000 to Adams Oshiomhole’s campaign in 2008.

Ize-Iyamu expressed this on Sunday, during a governorship debate organized by Channels Television.

Oshiomhole governed Edo State from 2008 to 2016 and lobbied for Obaseki in 2016, when he challenged against Ize-Iyamu, who was the applicant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at that point.

Obaseki asserted that Oshiomhole didn’t have cash to arraign his desire in 2008, so he and a few companions upheld him.

“I put together plans for his administration and for eight years, I worked pro bono to make him succeed,” Obaseki said.

But Ize-Iyamu dismissed the claims, saying Obaseki did not have enough resources to influence Oshiomhole’s victory.

“When I heard that he claimed that he raised the money, I laughed. And the first time I saw Oshiomhole after a long time, I asked him. The reality is that the money Governor Obaseki brought for Oshiomhole’s election, his own contribution was N100,000.

“We know how we raised money for Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s election. So, I’m surprised that in public like this, we can continue with a lie that was meant to dress you up for political acceptability,” Ize-Iyamu said.
