Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate for the September gubernatorial election in Edo State has escaped untouched by the major shakeup that took place in the ruling party on Thursday.

The party, at its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa dissolved the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

It appointed the governor of Yobe State, Mai Malla Buni as the party’s Caretaker /Convention Committee and gave him and members of the committee six months to organize the election of the NWC.

However, the party ratified the candidacy of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, retaining him as its candidate for the Edo governorship election.
