Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu

Ize-Iyamu was suspended from PDP for fraud before he attempted to join APC – Investigation

…source says Ize-Iyamu can’t be trusted with money

BENIN CITY – Contrary to claim by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Edo State, that he left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on his own terms, investigations have revealed that Ize-Iyamu was on suspension for fraud, and couldn’t have been given the party’s gubernatorial ticket.

A source familiar with his suspension told journalists in Benin City: “Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was already a suspended member of the PDP before he attempted to join the APC.

“There were campaign and other funds that the party gave to him for publicity which he could not account for. The party gave him time to account for the money but he couldn’t.

“We received several protest letters and series of complaints from party members and service providers about unpaid bills against Ize-Iyamu, even when we had proof that he was given the money to pay such bills.”

The source added: “The party had to suspend him when it became clear that he was not ready to face the party officials and account for the funds.”

He stressed that “Ize-Iyamu cannot be trusted with money. We are aware of his N700 million fraud case currently before a Federal High Court in Benin City. He will never change. Edo people should not waste their votes on him. Governor Godwin Obaseki has the integrity that we need in a leader and we need to give him our votes to sustain the progress we have recorded in all sectors of the state.
