Simple Agenda: Ize Iyamu Says He Didn't Plagiarise Pedro's Intellectual Property
*Pedro's Claims are frivolous

Pastor Ize-Iyamu said Pedro Obaseki’s claims ”are frivolous and could put him in serious trouble with the law. His first attempt to claim ownership of the SIMPLE agenda, an acronym and manifesto conceived and developed by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, was during an interview on Ben TV, believing that he could use the mental strength of another to make himself look good without his knowledge or notice.”

The APC flagbearer in a statement by John Mayaki, Chairman, Edo State APC Media Campaign Council, said: ”Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu had invited Don Pedro Obaseki and a few other persons to a meeting in 2013 in the residence of Mr Osaretin Edosomwan where he shared the SIMPLE agenda idea, a culmination of his thoughts on how to move Edo State forward, and made clear his intention to run for the office of Governor on the manifesto.

The acronym and the driving idea perhaps left a lasting impression on Don Pedro, who would then go on TV to claim it. But when this was brought to the attention of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, Pedro Obaseki showed remorse, apologized, and the large-hearted Pastor Ize-Iyamu forgave him for the grievous offence.

As a matter of fact, he held another interview, and several others after that, where he clarified that the idea of the SIMPLE agenda originated from Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Don Pedro Obaseki supported Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s governorship bid in 2016 when he ran with the same manifesto and acronym without a word or contention. His turn-around is without doubt political and a shameful advertisement of his lack of scruples.

Don Pedro Obaseki has not only reduced himself to backing a candidate he vehemently opposed in 2016, but he is also now offering himself as a tool for hatchet jobs and baseless propaganda without minding what it would do to his name and what is left of his integrity.”
