Ize-Iyamu casts vote in Iguododo ward

Edo governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Osagie Ize-Iyamu has cast his vote.

Mr Ize-Iyamu voted on Saturday in Iguododo ward five, unit 26 of Orhiomwon Local Government Area.

Dressed in a brown apparel, Ize-Iyamu approached the polling unit with his face mask as the Independent National Electoral Commission enforces the ‘no mask, no vote’ directive.

He said, “The accreditation is very easy, I have done that and they gave me the ballot paper. Where the ballot box is placed is covered and that means you can vote with some level of privacy.

“I cannot say that what is happening here is happening all over the state because the communication is not very good.

“I am happy I have been able to vote. I am very confident of winning and I just hope what is happening here is replicated all over the state.”

Although 14 political parties are in the governorship race, the battle is primarily between Ize-Iyamu and the incumbent Governor Godwin Obaseki.
