Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has said that Governor Adams Oshiomhole was helped into office by the Esama of Benin Kingdom, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion.

Ize-Iyamu also criticized Oshiomhole for disrespecting Igbinedion and other elders in the state.

The PDP candidate made the comments on Wednesday, August 3, 2016, during a rally in the Ovia North East Local Government Area of the state, according to Sahara Reporters.

“I feel sad when I hear Oshiomhole insults people like Chief Igbinedion when it was Chief Igbinedion that helped him to power,” he said.

“He should have tell the people what he did in the past eight years he resorted to insulting elders,” he added.

Ize-Iyamu also reportedly promised to develop the state if elected into office in September.
