The former Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Bright Omokhodion has officially withdrawn from the race for the governorship on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Omokhodion announced his decision, citing gross discontent with the screening committee’s skewed screening process of APC governorship candidates.

The withdrawal was made public in a statement personally signed by Omokhodion.

His words: “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 more 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.”

Dockaysworld gathered that the former speaker may be heading to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party in the state after his withdrawal from the race.

It was also gathered that some other contenders will soon announce their withdrawal as there are rumours that party’s leadership has already settled for a particular candidate.
