The governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Nasarawa State, Joseph Ewuga, has reportedly dumped his political ambition to support the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, David Ombugadu.
Ewuga, on Wednesday, announced his withdrawal from the race and appealed to his supporters to vote for the PDP candidate, while addressing members of the LP in the Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
Ewuga reportedly said he stepped down to boost the chances of the PDP candidate. He expressed confidence in the leadership qualities of Ombugadu to take Nasarawa state to greater heights.
He said, “I have decided to step down from the governorship race to fully support my brother from the Peoples Democratic Party, David Ombugadu.
“I believe he has great plans for our dear state and if he is voted into office, he will ensure that the 13 LGAs of the state are developed.
“So, I am calling on all my supporters and followers all over Nasarawa State to come out en masse on Saturday, March 11 to vote for Dr. David Ombugadu, to enable all residents of the state to enjoy the dividends of democracy for the next four years.”
