2023: Ex-Imo Gov, Ohakim withdraws from senatorial race

Ex-Governor of Imo State and a senatorial aspirant, Dr. Ikedi Ohakim has withdrawn from the senatorial primary election of the All Progressive Congress, APC.

The former governor made this disclosure in a release made available to DAILY POST on Saturday in Owerri, Imo State capital.

He said, “After due consultations with my family and close political associates, I wish to inform the good people of Okigwe zone, Imo state that I have withdrawn from the senatorial primary election scheduled for Saturday, May 28, 2022.

His letter to the party reads,” The decision to withdraw is purely for personal reasons.

“Let me, however, seize this opportunity to assure my brothers and sisters in the zone that I shall remain committed to the pursuit of their wellbeing and that I will continue to do everything within my reach to ensure that the zone takes its pride of place both at the state and national level.

“May I also express my profound gratitude to all those, within and outside the zone, who believed in the project and gave me both moral and material support, and plead and hope that they people take this decision in love and in faith.”

Ohakim’s withdrawal paves way for the renomination of the incumbent senator for the district, Frank Ibezim, one of the principal challenges of the former Governor of the State.
