Following the open confession by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu that he was once a cultist and member of a fraternity at the University of Benin, Members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) have cautioned members of the public over been taken in by Pastor Ize-Iyamu's open confession.

According to a high-ranking NANS executive, who did not want his name in print, Osagie Ize-Iyamu has not shown true repentance from his evil deed including the evil act of bathing an innocent student at the University of Benin with acid without justification.

The students union leader maintained that the simplest way of knowing that Ize-Iyamu was still a cultist is to take a close look at the band of boys following him around.

A truly repented cultist will not keep his former associates as his closest friends.

A close relative to Ize-Iyamu has also revealed information that Pastor Ize-Iyamu is using his pastoral influence as a smoke screen to shield himself but has concluded his plans on how to use the various fraternity groups which he once belonged to cause mayhem during 10th of September Edo state governorship election.

Other members of the Public who also spoke in an online social media chat have said that the only way Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu can convince the world that he is truly a repented cultist is for him to withdraw, renounce and denounce the various cult groups that he had already engaged ahead of the gubernatorial poll.

Meanwhile, market women and various youth organisations including Civil Society have openly expressed worries and fears over the emergence of a self-confessed cultist as the candidate of the PDP in the September 10th poll. In a communique issued this evening by the group, a political party that meant well for the state will not produce a dubious personality as their candidate stating that the era where the PDP can buy the conscience of the Public with their resources is over and done with.

In the same vein, the National Association of Edo Law Students have challenged Pastor Ize-Iyamu to publish his Law School result as proof that he graduated from University both in character and learning. The Law Students in a press statement issued in Abuja, expressed worry that Edo state would become a cultist state if Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu emerged victorious in the forth-coming governorship election.

As citizens and concerned Edo people, we must all join forces and mobilise against this political cabal that seeks to initiate our children and youth into an uncertain future.

Edo state has witnessed massive infrastructural and physical development in the past seven and half years under the dynamic leadership of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and we need to sustain this uncommon tempo of development by voting for Mr. Godwin Obaseki as governor in order to continue with the developmental strides with even more passion and zeal.

As a people of common destiny, we must take action to ensure that we vote an influential governor who has what it takes to industrialize our state and to provide massive employment for our youth and not a PDP government that has no definite plan for the state the statement added.
