Oyegun Withdraws From APC Chairmanship Race

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has finally broken his prolonged silence on his future as the National Chairman of the APC, saying he had decided to step aside and not re-contest the position at the ruling Party’s forthcoming national convention.

President Muhammadu Buhari had openly endorsed the immediate past governor of Edo State and Chief Oyegun’s kinsman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, for the national chairmanship position.

He told newsmen Friday night at his residence that it was his personal conviction not to seek re-election, but will always be available to serve the Party, adding that it was in the best interest of the Party for him not to seek another term in office.

Oyegun said even though he had desired to re-contest the position he had decided that in the interest of the Party, he will not be seeking re-election and has therefore decided to withdraw from the race.
