The defeated candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has assured his supporters that he would reclaim his mandate as the duly elected governor.
He said this while speaking at the opening of the office of the Edo Mandate Recovery Centre.
“I will do everything to ensure the actualization of the mandate they gave to me. I cannot be compromised, I cannot be bought and I have faith in the judiciary, I have faith in God.
“Edo people should also have faith, and on no condition should they resort to violence. It is going to be a long road and in the course of this journey, a man who did not win will be temporarily sworn in; but we must not leave the State. The will of God will be done at the end of the day
“We honestly believe that the movement to reclaim this mandate has gone beyond the PDP and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu. It is a movement of all Edo people. A movement to protect the sanctity of our tomorrow, our collective destinies.”
