Ondo Election: Two Candidates Withdraw Ahead of Saturday's Poll

Two gubernatorial candidates of two political parties have withdrawn from the race with less than 24 hours to go.
The governorship candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr. Oluwadare Bada, has withdrawn from tomorrow’s governorship election in Ondo State.

Bada made this known in a press statement he made available to journalists in Akure through the Director of Media of his Campaign Committee, Mr. Abiodun Oluwarotimi, yesterday.

In the statement, the NNPP candidate who is also an Akure native said he decided to withdraw from the race owing to community pressure from his primary constituency.

He, however, advised all his canvassers and polling agents to withdraw from further participation in the election.

Bada also noted that necessary information had been passed to the party’s accredited leaders for onward transmission to all his supporters.

It would be recalled that on Wednesday, the Action Alliance (AA) governorship candidate Mr. Yinka Orokoto withdrew from the race and collapsed his structure with that of the Alliance for Democracy (AD).

About 26 political parties are jostling for the number one position in the Sunshine State with just 4 top contenders.
