Isah in a statement shared on social media, bowed out of the race in respect to Party supremacy.
Read full statement:
The past few months have been highly eventful as we collectively combed the nooks and crannies of our great constituency; Okehi/Adavi LGA, meeting our constituents in the sale of our vision and conveying our mission to change the narratives with the ultimate goal of representing you at the green Chambers to bring these promises to fruition.
As a team, we were warmly received everywhere we went and the enthusiasm was clearly evident which demonstrated that the hope they had in our mission was no fluke; that much we can all attest!
The journey thus far, I make bold to say, was never in vain as it has rekindled the otherwise latent and waning hope in our people and has made them to BELIEVE again, in itself is success achieved.
As a progressive, a loyal and committed party man, the supremacy of the party is a virtue I have upheld and will continue to respect and uphold, thus any decision made and agreed by the party leadership must be respected and aligned with.
To this end, I wish to announce to you that I have withdrawn my candidacy as an aspirant for the Federal House of Representatives to represent the good people of Okehi/Adavi federal constituency.
I wish to appeal to you all to remain committed to our great party APC, and support whichever aspirant that emerges.
We can still do a lot more for our people even if not as elected representatives, FORWARD! we still move.
You are WINners, despair not, the setback is very temporary, there’s more ahead to achieve collectively together, thus we must remain united and resolute in our resolve.
I thank you all for your wonderful support. It has been fun all through and that is never lost on any of us, that spirit should be continued going forward. Thanks and God bless!!
