It was gathered that the governorship candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr. Oluwadare Bada, has withdrawn from tomorrow’s governorship election in Ondo State.
Bada made this known in a press statement he made available to journalists in Akure through the Director of Media of his Campaign Committee, Mr. Abiodun Oluwarotimi, yesterday.
In the statement, the NNPP candidate who is also an Akure man said he decided to withdraw from the race owing to community pressure from his primary constituency.
He, however, advised all his canvassers and polling agents to withdraw from further participation in the election.
Bada also noted that necessary information had been passed to the party’s accredited leaders for onward transmission to all his supporters.
