Chairman of the Governor’s Mandate Network, Earl Osaro Onaiwu, in a statement, Ize-Iyamu that at a time that people are preoccupied with how to combat the spread of coronavirus in the country, making donations to strengthen health facilities in the country, the governorship aspirant has as priority the composition of campaign team. Onaiwu was of the view that the desperation has disqualified Iyamu from becoming Edo State government. He decried that Ize Iyamu does not care about the people of Edo State but his parochial interest.
