A frontline aspirant for the ticket of the All Progressives Congress for Oyo Central Senatorial District, Abisoye Fagade, has withdrawn from the race.
The aspirant made his decision known in a statement he personally signed, few hours to the commencement of the poll.
Fagade said: “Dear compatriots, delegates, the leadership of our great party and members of the press.
“I am constrained at this point in today’s internal electoral process to withdraw my aspiration as the frontliner for today’s primary election to elect the candidate to represent our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Oyo Central Senatorial District in the forthcoming 2023 General elections.
“While my team and I, together with our overwhelming teeming supporters, have had a hunch for long that certain vested interests and powerful elements within our party in Oyo State had a sinister plan to subvert the wishes of the delegates, we had hoped and worked very hard at ensuring that common sense, fairness, justice and equity would prevail in providing a level playing field for the authentic delegates to elect the candidate of their choice.
“Oyo Si Maa Dun. Ire ni ooooo”.
