The political tempo in Edo is rising as the south-south state prepares for another civic duty to elect a new governor in September.
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the APC’s candidate for the poll has alleged that the PDP lacks tact and strategy.
Ize-Iyamu wondered why the PDP would decide to field Governor Godwin Obaseki as its candidate after condemning him as a non-achiever.
The Nation reports that the APC candidate’s words were contained in a statement by the spokesperson of his campaign organisation, Prince John Mayaki.
He said it was confusing for PDP leaders to be singing Obaseki’s praise after describing him as a failure who deceived the courts and the INEC with counterfeit credentials.
Ize-Iyamu said the PDP has now made a U-turn, claiming the Edo governor has recorded significant achievements.
“The truth is that the PDP has neither plan nor strategy for winning the election or to lead Edo state,” the statement read partly.
