Ize-iyamu who said this in a television broadcast on Wednesday, September 23.

“Let it not be said 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.”
Daily Times had reported that APC had congratulated Gov Obaseki after his victory.
Mai Mala Buni, Chairman All Progressives Congress (APC) National Caretaker Committee, said that the peaceful conduct of the just concluded Edo governorship election and its outcome represents a victory for Nigeria’s democracy.
