Odi Okojie, husband of Nigerian actress, Mercy Johnson, has declared his support for Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the September 19, 2020, governorship election in Edo State.
Okojie is said to be an international businessman and a prince in Uromi, Esan North East Local Government of the state.
In a press statement credited to him by Within Nigeria, Okojie, who is reported to be an ardent loyalist of Adams Oshiomhole, former national chairman of the party, said he will lead his Esan people to support the party and its candidate.
He also expressed confidence that the party will emerge victorious in the election on Saturday.
“Elections can be won and they can also be lost, but in this coming election, I can assure you that APC is winning. There is no doubt about that. The people in my place have already accepted APC as their party,” he was quoted as saying.
They are going to come out to support the party and make sure that we have victory. Governor Obaseki failed in all ramifications because he does not even know what it is to be a leader.
“He lacks leadership skills and all he does is fight and that’s not the way to go about politics. Politics is about knowing your people and your people knowing you in return. From what I can see, he is not on ground but our candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize -Iyamu is going to win this election, undoubtedly”.
He also dismissed fears that the election may turn out to be violent.
“This election is going to be peaceful and the truth of the matter is that all you see or hear on social media are mere speculations. I’ve said it before that elections are not won on social media. You guys living outside Edo state are not from here and you would not be coming here to vote. We have our PVCs already and the voting process is going to be as peaceful as possible. There is no violence whatsoever and I can assure you that at the end of the day, the victory would be ours”, the statement said.[NewsNaira]
