KOWA Party Dissociates Itself From Candidate’s Endorsement of PDP’s Ize-Iyamu

Press Release

Our attention has been drawn to the news circulating in the media about an endorsement of the People’s Democratic Party candidate Pastor Ize-Iyamu in the forthcoming Edo Elections.

We are appalled by the decision taken by the candidate and his campaign team due to the financial challenges posed by the postponement of the elections for another two weeks. It is unfortunate, embarrassing and a direct opposite of what our party represents.

His actions and that of his campaign team is without consultation and against the guidelines of our party both at the state level and at the National Level.

What we represent as a party is a clean break from the models of governance and patronage system of politics that is currently entrenched in the People’s Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress.

A similarity in the manifesto of a party does not therefore represent a sufficient and necessary criterion for an endorsement by our party.

Comrade Mark Adebayo who heads the National Secretariat of our party has thereby issued a notification of dismissal to Barrister Thompson Osadolor authorised by the entire BOT/NEC of the party which takes effect immediately. He does not therefore qualify to bear our flag in the forthcoming elections for the governorship elections on September 28.

We are currently consulting with our Legal Advisors on the legal implications and the next steps to take on this unfortunate incident. The appropriate bodies including INEC will get our letters of notification to this effect on Wednesday due to the Public Holidays.

We are therefore urging our supporters to hold the fort and continue to propagate our message to rid Edo State of the political class that is responsible for the rot it is currently experiencing.

May God Bless Edo State and her citizens.

Jude ‘Feranmi

National Youth Leader (On behalf of the National Executive Council, KOWA PARTY)
