The secret pact between Jonathan and Oshiomhole leaked

If not for an agreement reached between former President Goodluck Jonathan and Governor Adams Oshiomhole, the latter would not have won his second term in the 2012 Edo governorship election, Chief Tom Ikimi has revealed.
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu flagged off his campaign in Benin city
Ikimi, a former minister of foreign affairs, made this revelation in Benin at the campaign flag-off of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
He said if not for the agreement, Oshiomhole would not have won the election in 2012, but that after the electoral victory, the governor betrayed Jonathan.

Daily Post reports that Ikimi revealed that part of the agreement reached between Jonathan and Oshiomhole was the level-playing field the president approved during that election that got the governor victory.
He said prior to the second term election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) planned to drop Oshiomhole, but that he (Ikimi) saved the governor who came to him and knelt down to beg.
According to Ikimi, Oshiomhole won the election, not because of merit but because the former minister and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu took him to Jonathan to demand for a level playing field,
He also mentioned the roles played by like Chief Gabriel Igbinedion and Chief Tony Anenih, a former works minister.
“Pastor Ize-Iyamu brought Oshiomhole to me. I never knew him before. I was told he was a former Labour leader. I was persuaded to accept him and we took him round the 192 wards.
“In his first four years, he betrayed us. We wanted to drop him but he knelt down to beg me.
“It was myself and Pastor Ize-Iyamu that took Oshiomhole to former President Jonathan to beg him to provide a level playing field.”
“Jonathan supported us. Oshiomhole won not because he was brilliant, but he has paid us in band coin,” he said.
Meanwhile, the governor has been dragged before the Federal High Court in Benin, by the former ‎state executive director of Poverty Alleviation and Women Mobilisation, Evelyn Igbafe, over alleged threat to life and abuse of her rights.
