“We are going to talk to everybody and we are going to bring everybody back. And let me also say that I want to salute my brother, the governor of the state, Mr Godwin Obaseki. I will like to appeal to him to return to the party.

“The atmosphere in our state has been tense in the past few months and it was unnecessary. That hostile atmosphere, more or less put a stop to governance. But we are hoping that now we have concluded our primary even though I have to start campaigns, let’s do it in an atmosphere of love and peace.”

KanyiDaily had reported that Ize-Iyamu was declared winner of the APC governorship primary after polling 27,838 votes to defeat two other aspirants, Dr Pius Odubu and Mr Osaro Obaze, who polled 3,776 and 2,724 respectively.

Meanwhile, Governor Obaseki has obtained the Expression of Interest and Nomination forms for the PDP gubernatorial primary.
