Ebri Bows Out As Oshiomhole Vie For APC Chairmanship Unopposed



The Chairmanship seat of the All Progressive Congress (APC) seems to have no vacancy as the coast seems to be clear for Former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole to clinch the seat as the National Convention of the Party would be holding today.

Oshiomhole seems to be contesting for the seat unopposed as the latest of his ravel Chief Clement Ebri, also a former Governor of Cross River, announced his withdrawal from the race.

In his letter titled: “Withdrawal from National Championship race”, Ebri indicated his decision to withdraw from the race was in Abuja.

Ebri took a cue from two other aspirant who also pulled out of the race, as the Convention of the Party holds on Saturday.

He disclosed that he came to the decision to withdrew after due consultation with friends, family and associates in the interest of the party.

He added that the decision was also taken in his belief that “all stakeholders “must tow in the same rancour free direction as the 2019 general election approaches”.

Ebri noted that the ability of the APC government to deliver on it promises to Nigeria, largely depends on what happened in the leadership of the APC.

He also stated that the fundamental task of the APC was to win elections, adding that it behoved on the party to offer its elected officials a means for organising government.

This, Ebri said, became the primary link between the people and government.

He also admonished his supporters to transfer their support for his aspiration to former governor of Edo, Mr Adams Oshiomhole as National Chairman of the APC.

“We should all render him every support and encouragement he needs as he and his team proceed to rebuild our party into a formidable, unified and inclusive organisation where every voice counts,” he said.
