The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, and other leaders of the party went to Etsako East LGA on Wednesday to introduce the Simple Agenda Manifesto to the Palace of the Traditional ruler and populaces of Agenebode, Its headquarters.
Okumagbe HRH Goerge Egabor Omoze of the palace of Weppa Wano was pleased as Pastor Ize-Iyamu came to present and handed copies of his Manifesto, the Simple Agenda. The monarch welcomed the APC candidate and said, “I pray for you that God protects you and God gives you what you want. We pray that God will make what you are aspiring for to come true, that is our prayer,” he said.
The Okumagbe expressed gratitude to the APC candidate for the September Edo governorship election, for doing an outstanding job in the state when he was in office, serving as Chief of staff and later as Secretary to the State Government.
“All the things we have here today I got them while he (Ize-Iyamu) was in government, the High Court, Collage of Agriculture, a transformer in front of my house, my appointment as Chairman/Governing Council of Usman Dan Fodio University (Sokoto), College of Education-Ekiadolar and Usen, that was when he was in government,” he said.
Ize-Iyamu described the monarch as one of the people who are passionate about progress like him, while he was presenting his Manifesto. He also noted that Agenebode occupied a planned position and its promises have not been fully exploited to move Edo forward.
