The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has warned Governor Adams Oshiomole to leave his church out of political matters.

Ize-Iyamu is a senior pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

He made the comments via a statement released by his campaign organisation.

The statement reads:

“Governor Adams Oshiomhole and his puppet APC candidate, Godwin Obaseki, should not drag RCCG into their dirty, unholy politics. The allegation is a cheap blackmail from those who want to bring the name of the church into disrepute, and they will surely fail.”

“Why can’t pastors be part of our efforts to rescue Edo State? Just yesterday, three more pensioners in Edo state died while others are presently languishing in penury and different ailments following the long wait for their arrears of pension and gratuities after retirement from active service.”

Ize-Iyamu’s comments were also addressed to his main competitor and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Godwin Obaseki.
