The candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the September 19 governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has secured the endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari following a meeting at the presidential villa, Abuja on Friday.
The Chairman of the APC National Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Committee and Governor of Yobe state, Mai Mala Buni disclosed this to correspondents after the meeting.
Also speaking, Ize-Iyamu, denied hosting the state assembly members who purportedly impeached the speaker and deputy speaker on Thursday.
He also said that former National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, is not the face of his campaign, noting that it is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that is dragging the former Edo governor into the fray.
Ize-Iyamu blamed Governor Godwin Obaseki for the rising political tension in the state, saying that as one who does not have immunity, he will not make trouble because “I don’t want to go to jail .”
