Before the governorship election in Nasarawa State on Saturday, Joseph Ewuga, the Labour Party’s candidate, dropped out and endorsed David Ombugadu of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Speaking at the Akwanga Local Government Area on Wednesday, Ewuga claimed that he quit to help the PDP candidate’s chances.
Ewuga asked his supporters to vote for the PDP candidate and expressed confidence in Ombugadu’s abilities to take Nasarawa State to new heights.
“I have decided to withdraw from the governorship campaign in order to completely support my Peoples Democratic Party brother, David Ombugadu,” he added.
I believe he has excellent ideas for our beloved state, and if elected, he will ensure that
The state’s 13 LGAs have been developed.
“As a result, I am urging all of my supporters and followers in Nasarawa State to turn out in large numbers on Saturday, March 11 to vote for Dr. David Ombugadu, so that all inhabitants of the state can enjoy the rewards of democracy for the next four years.”
Labaran Maku, a former Minister of Communication and Director-General of the State PDP Campaign Council, said his party and the Labour Party resolved to work together to save Nasarawa State from the All Progressives Congress administration’s alleged substandard governance. Any attempt to rig the elections and subvert the will of the people would be met with resistance,” Maku warned.
