The All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Edo, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has stated that Adams Oshiomhole is not his godfather.

He said that the former National Chairman of the APC is working for him.

Ize-Iyamu disclosed this while speaking with Arise Television on Sunday, August 23.

He also stated that he once stepped down for Oshiomhole in 2007. According to him, the relationship between him and Oshiomhole is mutual respect.

Further, he said: “the only person that is really my godfather is God himself.”

“In 2007, so that he can become governor, my people were urging me to become governor but I stepped down for him because his area has never had a governor, he comes from Edo north,” Ize-Iyamu said.

“Where I come from, Edo southwest has had a governor. I just thought that well, for equity to prevail, it will be nice to make history. Of course, he has done so well as chairman of APC and I just said well, you know it’s good.

“So for somebody like me to now describe him as a godfather or say Oshiomhole is my godfather, on what basis?. We have had history of robust engagement, we have disagreed and come back together, so what you see is mutual respect

“Oshiomhole is working for me, he is campaigning with me because he is also passionate about his party winning Edo and you can’t take that away from him,” he said.
