Ize-Iyamu Goes For Thanksgiving After Edo Defeat

Posted on October 5, 2020

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the just concluded Edo State election on Sunday held a thanksgiving service despite losing the election to the incumbent Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The special thanksgiving service was held in his parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Soul Winners Assembly in Benin City, Edo State.

According to Ize-Iyamu, God expects man to offer him praises in all situations, noting that defeat is an imagined state, and that since the exercise he had not felt defeated.

He however dismissed claims that he is downcast over the outcome of the election, choosing instead to express gratitude for the exercise, as well as immensely thank supporters and those who assisted him.

The APC governorship candidate whose sermon was titled “utilising opportunities” said every opportunity must be seized to achieve an aim.

Ize-Iyamu admonished his supporters not to allow the seed of defeat germinate among them, as God has decreed that all the “earth is theirs”.

Also speaking at the Thanksgiving service, an RCCG Regional Pastor in the state, Prof. Dele Balogun also urged supporters of Ize-Iyamu not to lose focus as God may allow them to lose a battle and later win the war to test their faith.
