“The problem was that before the election because of the financial recklessness of the PDP during the last general election, PDP already had a bad name in Edo. And to add to the injury, the Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu who was the PDP candidate was among those who collected N700million for the presidential election," the group said.

Meanwhile, Osagie Ize-Iyamu has called on his supporters to remain calm saying we can leave everything to God.
