Rev. Martins, who is also the lead pastor of Hillcity Ministry and an activist, was reacting to his purported endorsement of the All Progressives Congress (APC), candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, in Benin.
Rev. Olu Martins, the Executive Director, Canvassers for Democracy and Rule of Law, on Wednesday said Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo meant well for the people and therefore deserved overwhelming support of all in his re-election bid.
Martins told newsmen that there was never a time he endorsed Ize-Iyamu, adding that it was a joke taken too far. Martins said, “For some 48 hours now my phone has been inundated with calls and texts of my purported endorsement of the APC candidate.
“The candidate of the APC is my very good friend and that of my family, whom I respect and relate freely and regularly. “He played a pivotal role in my life and continues to so do.
