Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed gratitude to his supporters after losing the election ticket to his challenger, Governor Obaseki in the Edo governorship poll on Saturday, September 19.

Hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Obaseki as a winner of the governorship race, Ize-Iyamu took it to his twitter account to congratulate his challenger for winning his re-election and thanked his supporters, who according to him had to sustain many evils during the poll.

It would be recalled that the candidate of the APC lost the election ticket with 223,619 votes while Obaseki, who was declared as a winner of the election, polled 307,955 votes.
