There Is No Quarrel Between Myself And Oshiomhole – Ize-Iyamu

Aspiring governor of Edo State, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has played off rumors of a falling out with former state governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman Adams Oshiomhole.

Ize-Iyamu stated this on Thursday in an interview on Arise Television’s The Morning Show.

The former Edo APC governorship candidate declared that he and Oshiomhole had a cordial relationship and that they were on good terms.

Ize-Iyamu said, “I will tell you categorically that we are on good terms. There is no quarrel between myself and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

“We have worked closely throughout the party formation to begin to quarrel unnecessarily. The fact that we disagree does not mean that there is a problem. He has a strong personality, I also have that. So we are bound to disagree,” he added.

Recall that the ruling party scheduled its primary on February 17 in order to hold it before Edo State’s governorship election on September 21.

Ize-Iyamu has later refuted reports that he was disqualified from the APC primary by a screening committee that was purportedly formed by Oshiomhole, insisting that he is still very much in the race.

Selecting the APC flagbearer is not a choice made by “one man,” according to Ize-Iyamu.

Ize-Iyamu asserted that Oshiomhole, a well-liked party member, is powerless to choose the APC’s governorship nominee.

“The issue of who becomes a candidate is not a decision for one man. Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is highly respected in our party but even him, will not tell you that ‘I will decide who will be,” he said.
