Godwin Alaku, the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Nasarawa State, has stepped down for candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the state, Abdullahi Sule, who is also the incumbent governor of the state.
Alaku stepped down for Abdullahi few days to the March 18, 2023 governorship election. He made this known during a press conference held at the Nigeria Union of Journalists Press Centre in Lafia the state capital on Wednesday.
He noted that the ADC as a party decided to support Governor Abdulhahi Sule’s second term bid in the interest of citizens of the state for them to continue enjoying the dividends of democracy.
“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.”
