Mr. Osagie Ize-Iyamu is a Pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God. He had inherited a popular alias called ‘pelebe’, from University of Benin, his alma mata.
He was former Secretary to Edo State Government under Chief Lucky Nosakhare Igbinedion – his godfather, Lucky Igbinedion has promised to produce him as the next Governor for Edo people while Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia searched for a competent successor to Adams oshiomhole.
Igbinedion had declared that he would be the one to decide who becomes the governor of the state come September 28th.
Igbinedion stressed that by virtue of his high rating in the party, he is in a prime position to anoint who will be the next governor of the state.
“Whoever is going to be the next governor of the state must be one of the founding members of the PDP in the state. And must also be a member of the ‘family’,” he said.
But political analysts aren’t comfortable with this statements from no less a personality as unpopular as Igbinedion. They say Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia they know, Odigie-Oyegun they know but Lucky is not as lucky.
In searching for Oshiomhole’’s successor, Ogbemudia embarked on a mass movement to get one in the person of Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
But Lucky Igbenedion has found one and he is a ‘family friend’, according to him. Has Lucky not jeopardized the chances of this alleged ‘family friend abinitio since he has lost his political residue? Will this be a continuation of that government, these are the questions begging for answer since Lucky declared his assignment.
