EDO2020 – Odubu Fumes, Asks Ize-Iyamu To Present His APC Party Card, Registration

A former Deputy Governor of Edo State and one of the underdogs in the forthcoming Edo 2020 gubernatorial election has angrily demanded the registration and APC membership card of Osagie Ize-Iyamu at a just-concluded meeting

Ize-Iyamu who purportedly joined the APC in his Ugbor residence some months ago has since been unable to register and secure a party card for himself; Recall that Ize-Iyamu was advised by the APC to go and join the party in his Ward in Orhionmwon if he must be recognized as a member of the party as that is the norm in joining the All Progressives Congress; however, banking on Oshiomhole’s maradonaic character, Iyamu flouted genuine advice joining the EPM in Ugbor instead of the APC

Though it was Odubu who represented Oshiomhole, who was then under house arrest, to receive Iyamu into their EPM fold unknowing to them that Oshiomhole, despite being the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, lacks the political carriage in Edo APC to secure a party card and registration for Iyamu

In a meeting that just ended at an undisclosed location in the GRA area of Benin City, the Edo State capital, Odubu who was said to be furious with Adams Oshiomhole for his (Oshiomhole) preference for Iyamu over and above himself strongly demanded to see Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s party card and registration; the issue it was learned almost degenerated to a brawl, but it took the intervention of other attendees at the meeting to calm an angry Odubu

“You are not a member of our party; you do not possess our party card, you are not a registered member of the APC; I was only ordered by Oshiomhole to come and receive you when you decamped in your compound, otherwise I don’t associate with elements like you, but for political convenience, I had to do it,” said Odubu

Some Odubu loyalists who craved anonymity revealed that Ize-Iyamu was practically dumbfounded as he was lost of words, and all efforts to reach Oshiomhole via telephone proved abortive as calls to his phones were unanswered and messages unreplied

The pressure is mounting on Odubu to dump his gubernatorial ambition and rally behind Ize-Iyamu but we learned Odubu has vowed to fight dirty if Oshiomhole eventually picks Iyamu instead of him

“I cannot be a passenger in my own vehicle” Odubu has said

While Oshiomhole, Iyamu, Odubu, Airhiavbere, Ogiemwonyi, and others continue to wallow in their incoherence, the Ojezua-led Edo APC has adopted the indirect primary to elect a candidate that will fly the party’s flag in the gubernatorial election September this year
