Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Us­man A. Bello, Benin

The Edo State chap­ter of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Move­ment (PDM) has adopted the can­di­date of the Sen. Ahmed Makarfiled PDP, Pas­tor Osagie IzeIyamu, for the Septem­ber 10 gover­nor­ship elec­tion in the state.

Speak­ing to jour­nal­ists at the week­end, the state chair­man of the PDM, Nosa Omoro­dion, said the de­ci­sion was taken af­ter care­fully as­sess­ing candidates of the two ma­jor po­lit­i­cal par­ties in the state, the APC and the PDP.

He as­sured that the PDM would make its re­sources avail­able for the ac­tu­al­i­sa­tion of the gu­ber­na­to­rial am­bi­tion of Pas­tor Ize-Iyamu.

He added they ap­proach other would smaller po­lit­i­cal par­ties in the state to give their sup­port to Pas­tor Ize-Iyamu, as there was no need for them to present gover­nor­ship candidates that could not go any­where.

Re­spond­ing, Pas­tor IzeIyamu promised to in­te­grate the PDM mem­bers into his cam­paign com­mit­tee, as­sur­ing that he would not dis­ap­point them when voted into of­fice.
