Reports have it that some APC governors are not quite happy over the maltreatment meted out to one of their own , the incumbent governor during the last primary elections as he was literally sidelined and same goes to the President which eventually led to the sack of Oshiomhole and the entire NWC of the party and also the President has been seen according audience to Obaseki during and after the primary elections of the APC.

Supporters and stakeholders in the APC fear that this might spell doom for Ize-Iyamo if the President refused to grant him audience and openly endorse him.
