The candidate of KOWA Party in the Edo State governorship election, Thompson Osadolor, has withdrawn from the race.
Osadolor, who confirmed this to our correspondent on Saturday, explained that his decision to withdraw from the election followed the impact of the shift on his campaign.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had on Thursday postponed the poll after the Nigeria Police Force and the Department of State Security suggested a shift due to security threats.
But the KOWA candidate, who condemned the postponement, lamented that the failure of INEC to hold the election on September 10 ‘destabilised’ 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, however, endorsed the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, and urged KOWA supporters to channel their votes to the major opposition party.
According to him, PDP was a better alternative because of the similarities between the manifestos of the two parties.
Osadolor explained, “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.
