Yinka Kolawole in Osogbo

A prominent governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, Alhaji Moshood Olalekan Adeoti, has formally withdrawn from Friday’s governorship primaries of the party.

This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of Moshood Adeoti Campaign Organisation (MACO) Mr. Kayode Agbaje and made available to newsmen in Osogbo, the state capital.

According to him, Alhaji Adeoti’s decision to withdraw from the race is hinged on his resolve to abide by a resolution of the Osun West Senatorial District wing of the party dissociating itself from the exercise.

In addition, the frontline governorship aspirant said his withdrawal was based on not giving credibility to a skewed and jaundiced process already designed to favour an anointed aspirant.

Alhaji Adeoti however informed his teeming supporters that he was still in the race to contest and win the September 22 governorship election. He did however not say on which political platform he would contest.
