Ize-Iyamu, who was the candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2016 election had defected to the APC in the heat of the misunderstanding between Godwin Obaseki, governor of the state, and Adams Oshiomhole, the suspended national chairman of the party.
Hope Uzodinma, governor of Imo and chairman of the election panel, who announced the result of the primary election in Benin on Monday, said Ize-Iyamu polled 27,388 votes ahead of Pius Odubu, his closest rival who had 3,776 votes.
“Iyamu having scored highest in the primary election is hereby returned candidate of the APC in the coming governorship election,” he said.
“This election is one of the most clinically exercised in the history of elections in Nigeria. This state which originally belongs to the APC will return to the APC after the governorship election.”Image courtesy of Seunmanuel Faleye - ApplesBite International MagazineShare this post
