The governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress in Nasarawa State, Godwin Alaku, has stepped down for the incumbent governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the state, Abdullahi Sule, ahead of the March 18, 2023 governorship election.
Alaku disclosed this at a press conference held at the Nigeria Union of Journalists Press Centre in Lafia on Wednesday.
According to him, the ADC as a party in the state decided to support Governor Sule’s second term bid in order for residents of the state to continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
He said, “We have come to the realistic conclusions that the incumbent governor, Engr AA Sule, has done well since coming into office as the governor of the state from 2019.
“In view of that, I, Hon. Godwin Williams Alaku, have decided to step down as the gubernatorial candidate of the ADC party in Nasarawa State and do hereby plead with all our teeming members of the ADC to come out en masse to vote for Engr AA. Sule of the APC come this Saturday.
“Nasarawa State has been tested in terms of security, economy and transparency in governance, in all of this, Engr. AA Sule has done tremendously well and therefore should be allowed to be in office for the second term.
“This will allow the governor to build on the solid foundation already laid in the last three years.”
While advocating for peaceful Governorship and House of Assembly elections on Saturday, the ADC candidate further called on residents of the state not to vote based on religion and ethnicity during the polls.
