Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has urged voters in Edo State not to be deceived by the promises of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the Saturday, September 10 governorship elections in the state.

Fayose also urged voters to cast their votes for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu on Saturday.

The governor made the comments via a statement released by media aide, Lere Olayinka.

The statement reads:

“Edo people should not make the same mistake Nigerians made last year by enthroning the All Progressives Congress (APC) government of President Muhammadu Buhari.”

“The people should not just vote and go to sleep, they must make sure that their votes count and victory is ensured for Pastor Ize-Iyamu who is unarguably the best among the contenders.

“If you believe in me and you are a voter in Edo State, give your vote to Pastor Ize-Iyamu, the man who has demonstrated the required capacity to lead Edo State to prosperity.

“Opportunity to choose comes once in four years and the people of Edo State must grab this opportunity to change the fortune of the State for the better. Edo people should also be assured that Nigerians are now looking for a more meaningful change that is better than the APC’s one chance change and Pastor Ize-Iyamu represents that meaningful change in Edo State.”

Fayose also urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that the elections are free, fair and conclusive.

Ize-Iyamu will compete against Godwin Obaseki of the APC and other candidates to clinch Edo’s number one position.
