“ I ’m using this opportunity to extend the hand of fellowship to my brother, Pastor Osagie Ize - Iyamu, and his other colleagues in the All Progressives Congress to join us and work with us so that we can move Edo forward

“ On a specific note, I want to use this occasion to call on the former chairman of the APC , Comrade Adams Oshiomhole , that the fight is over and he should come and join in building the house where he was part of laying the foundation .
