He beckoned on the former governor of the state to “come and join in building the house, where he was part of laying the foundation”.
According to him; “We have no malice. The only thing we disagree on is the approach in moving Edo forward.”
The Edo governor also called on his strongest opponent in the election, Pastor Ize-Iyamu of the APC, saying; “we are one family in the pursuit to provide services and public vote for our citizens.”
“I want to put it on record that the election of September 19, 2020 has been adjudged as one of the best conducted elections in terms of it being free and fair.
“Our citizens have decided that for now, they trust us more with the affair of leadership. It does not mean that they did not have a role to play. It does not mean that they are not part of a family.
“So I am using this opportunity to extend a hand of fellowship to my brother, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu. and his other colleagues in the APC to join us and work with us so that we can move Edo State forward.”
