The All Progressive Congress flagbearer in the Edo state last Governorship election which was held on Saturday, Pastor Ize-Iyamu has called on Governor Godwin Obaseki who defeated him at the polls to come back to his former party, APC, Punch News reported.

According to the Punch News report, Ize-Iyamu made the appeal during a television broadcast on Wednesday night. He said, "We are going to talk to everybody; we are going to bring everybody back.

"I want to salute my brother, the governor. I will like to appeal to him to return to the party. In every family, we have disagreements.

"Let it not be that it was this disagreement that pushed him out. I made that mistake before, and I have come to realise that it was a grievous error and I will not want him as a senior brother to make the same mistake.

"I will like to appeal to him to set aside his anger and come back. In APC, he is recognised as a leader, and it would be difficult for him to be recognised as a leader in the new party he is going".

After the election in Edo state on Saturday 19, September, Godwin Obaseki had emerged the winner. He polled 314,676 votes to defeat his main opponent, Ize-Iyamu who had 223,619 votes.
