Following the postponement of the Edo state governorship election, the candidate of KOWA Party, Thompson Osadolor, has withdrawn from the race.
Osadolor confirmed this on Saturday stating that the postponement has destabilized his campaign.
He said, “I am not satisfied with the postponement of the election. They (INEC) knew that we would win the election; that was why they postponed the election.
“Having done that, they have destabilised us. That is one of the reasons we withdrew.”
Osadolor endorsed the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Pastor Ize-Iyamu, urging his supporters to vote for him.
“Because of the postponement of the election, I met with my campaign team; we decided to harness our campaign with that of the PDP.
“Our manifesto and that of the PDP are very similar and I think we will be able to work together. We reached an agreement with the PDP that we are going to run an inclusive government.
“PDP did not make any financial commitment to us. We do not have any financial agreement,” he added.
