Edo 2024: Ex- Edo Speaker Withdraws from Race for APC Ticket


January 15, (THEWILL) – Ex- Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Bright Omokhodion has announced his withdrawal from the race for the governorship on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

He said he had to withdraw from the race on personal principles.

In a statement personally signed by him on Sunday midnight and made available to THEWILL, the top level contender from Edo Central Senatorial District said he took the painful decision after a stormy consultant with his campaign team and network of supporters and stakeholders within the zone and across Edo State.

He said, “Compatriots, I wish you a blessed season’s best. It has become imperative to inform you that due to my gross discontent with the SKEWED screening process of APC governorship candidates by the screening committee, I am withdrawing from the 2024 Edo Governorship race.

“This decision is purely the outcome of consultation with my campaign team; we have jumped many hurdles and impediments in our quest but regrettably reached this decision after a stormy meeting.

“I must thank all of you for sharing in my vision and desire for a greater and productive Edo of our dreams. I will in due course advise our followers of the next line of action, while we continue to support the aspirations of my party, APC.

Once again, thank you for keeping the SMILES-VISION project alive.”
