Gubernatorial contender in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun state, Hon. Albert Adeogun, on Friday stepped down his ambition for Senator Ademola Adeleke, ahead of the party’s primaries.
Addressing a press conference after a consultative meeting held inside the residence of a PDP chieftain, Chief Abiola Morakinyo, Adeogun said his decision to drop his gubernatorial ambition, was as a result of wide consultation with stakeholders and the need to record electoral victory for the opposition during the election.
According to the lawmaker, who represents Ife Central/East/North/South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, the collective interest and welfare of the people in the state compelled him to step down for Adeleke.
Osun governorship election is scheduled to hold September 22.
