“The Simple Agenda—A Manifesto of Hope was there in 2016, coming into being as the comprehensive collection of politically applicable principles, clauses, and initiatives gained from long years in active political service.
“A newer and updated version appears, coming to accommodate the needs of the time and to iron out a life ruffled by the bad attitudes of the Obaseki leadership.
“The updated manifesto reflects the pains and desires of the vast majority of Edo people whom Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu interacted with in consonance with his belief in people-centred governance and leadership.”
Speaking on Governor Obaseki’s style of leadership, Pastor Ize-Iyamu said: “Unfortunately, these are traits missing in Edo leadership as presently constituted where the scarce resources rather being used for the betterment of its citizens, are channelled to promote violence and thuggery, victimization and plunder.”
