Dr Don Pedro Obaseki has asked Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state, to stop copying his intellectual property, the SIMPLE Agenda.
In a statement on Thursday, the former governorship aspirant in the state accused Ize-Iyamu of stealing the campaign manifesto he is using, saying the document belongs to him.

Obaseki noted that he came up with the manifesto when he was contesting to be the governor of Edo in 2016. He added that he first publicly unveiled the SIMPLE Agenda in August 2015 during a live programme on BENTV UK, where he presented his six-pronged campaign manifesto as an aspirant.
Obaseki said his SIMPLE idea is an acronym for Security and Social Welfare; Infrastructure Development and Urban Renewal; Manpower Development and Training; Public-Private Partnership; Leadership by Example and Employment for Edo Youths.
He said: “It has come to my attention that people have been advertising their campaign manifesto to be the SIMPLE Agenda, which is a direct lifting of my ideas I shared publicly in 2015.
“My SIMPLE idea is an acronym for Security and Social Welfare; Infrastructure Development and Urban Renewal; Manpower Development and Training; Public-Private Partnership; Leadership by Example and Employment for Edo Youths. This is the same as what the Pastor and his followers are parading online today.
“So, I state categorically that I would be commencing processes for retrieving my Intellectual Property, as it is obvious that the idea did not originate from those who are pushing on with it today.”
