JUST IN : Former Edo deputy governor withdraws from 2024 guber race


A former Edo Deputy Governor, Lucky Imasuen has resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship direct primary contest, which is scheduled to be held today.


Imasuen confirmed his withdrawal in a letter dated Saturday morning and it was earlier reported that Lucky Imasuen and 13 other governorship candidates were reviewed and cleared by a committee appointed by the APC’s National Working Committee.


The ex-deputy Governor’s resignation letter, addressed to his “highly-esteemed supporters,” stated that he withdrew from the race for the cause 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.
