A former Edo Deputy Governor Chief Lucky Imasuen has joined Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in withdrawing from the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship direct primary election in holding today.

Imasuen and Ize-Iyamu were among the 12 governorship aspirants screened and cleared by a committee put in place by the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC.

While Ize-Iyamu withdrew from the race on Friday, Imasuen’s withdrawal letter was released on Saturday morning.

The ex-deputy governor’s withdrawal letter, which was addressed to his “highly-esteemed supporters,” explained he withdrew from the race in the interest of peace and unity.

He said: “I have come to the conclusion that since members of our National Working Committee (NWC), in their wisdom, have expressed their preference for zoning the governorship position to Edo Central Senatorial District, it is wise to align with the decision of the party.

“I am immensely grateful for your unwavering support and belief in me, throughout this journey. Your dedication and passion have been the driving force behind my campaign.

While this decision was not made lightly, I trust that you will understand, and continue to support our party, as we work together towards our shared goals.

“From the foregoing, I am ready to support whoever emerges as our candidate in the primary election.”
