The Accord Party House of Assembly candidate for Agege Constituency 01, Hon. Jubreel Abdulkareem, has, at the last minute, withdrawn from the race to contest in Saturday’s election, urging his supporters to vote for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress.
The politician, in a statement by his media team, said this “most difficult decision of his lifetime”, taken after due consultations with stakeholders, was for the interest and progress of the community.
“I withdrew my participation in the next election to galvanise support for All Progressive Congress candidates in the State elections on Saturday having succumbed to superior arguments of taking Agege to #Nextlevel. What seemed to be irreconcilable differences that emanated from the conduct of primary elections in APC were suppressed with lessons learnt by all parties.”
He stated further that: “There is no doubt that we have invested so much in people to gain their confidence. I am double sure that most of my followers and supporters would feel disappointed with this eleventh hour decision, no sacrifice is too much to promote peace, love and better neighbourliness. I can only appeal for calmness and understanding in the belief that we have taken all issues into consideration and Agege shall be great again.”
He appealed to his followers and well-wishers to vote for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Before abandoning his ambition, he was contesting against the Hon. Mudashiru Obasa of the APC who is the incumbent speaker of the state House of Assembly. 5����
