KanyiDaily had reported that Ize-Iyamu, who was a candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last Edo governorship election, defected to the APC in the middle of a misunderstanding between thhe state governor, Godwin Obaseki and Oshiomhole.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that in 2016, when Oshiomhole was campaigning for Godwin Obaseki, the APC candidate who has now defected to the PDP, he (Oshiomhole) described Ize-Iyamu as someone who cannot be trusted with public funds.

Reacting during an interview with PUNCH over the weekend, Ize-Iyamu said Oshiomhole was “playing politics” and trying to “de-market” him because he contested for governor on the platform of a different party.

Pastor Ize-Iyamu said the suspended National leader did not mean the negative things he said about him because they were never from his heart.

“He made those statements during the period I was on the other side and was contesting to be the state governor and he (Oshiomhole) was determined to prevent that. What do you expect? Were you expecting him to praise me at that time when he did not want me to be governor,” he said.

“So, when you look at the context in which he said those things, you will understand that he was just playing politics and he needed to de-market me so that his candidate would have an advantage. And after the election, that was the end of it. So, I do not think that we should dwell too much on what he said before the election.

“If you are saying that, we can also take you back to what he said about me before then. People are saying look at the bad things he said during the campaign. Why did they not look at the good things he said before the campaign?

“The truth is that he was only trying to de-market me so that Edo people would not vote for me, not that it was from his heart. Of course, the man (Oshiomhole) can speak for himself; he is not dead. We are all pretending not to know that in politics, you can say all kinds of things just to de-market your opponent.”

“Why did they not look at the good things he said before the campaign? The truth is that he was only trying to de-market me so that Edo people would not vote for me, not that it was from his heart.”
