The reigning national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has surrendered by withdrawing from contesting for another tenure as the party’s leader.
Oyegun announced his withdrawal from the race to news men today, Friday at his Abuja residence, saying: “even though I had the desire to re-contest as National Chairman of the Party, I have decided that it is ultimately in the best interest of the Party for me to withdraw from the race.”
With his withdrawal, the coast now seems clear for the former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole who has been endorsed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Oshiomhole is from the same state and region as Oyegun.
