Osagie Ize-Iyamu, a gubernatorial candidate in the forthcoming Edo State election has said that his participation in Nigerian politics is to bring light into the polity.
He said this on The Platform program on TVC this morning with Sam Omatseye as the presenter. The program was tagged “Big Talk with Osagie Ize-Iyamu”
The gubernatorial candidate further cleared the air that there was no dispute between him and Oshiomhole, saying Oshiomhole already apologised to him and “when an adult apologises to you, you have to listen”.
When asked by the presenter why a Pastor was interested in the politics of Nigeria despite the seemingly ungodly things that happen in politics. Ize-Iyamu responded by quoting Proverbs 29:2 in the Bible, saying he was a righteous man and he would make the people of Edo State rejoice.
In the report gathered by Daily Times at the program, Osagie Ize-Iyamu has said he is not bothered by the rumours peddled against him, describing the allegations as an attempt to discourage him from becoming the Governor of Edo State.
