Kogi 2019: Party Governorship Candidate Withdraws From Race

The Candidate of the Nigeria Peoples Congress (NPC) in the November 16 2019 Kogi State governorship election, Alhaji Muhammed Aliyu, has withdrawn from the race.

Aliyu, who until now was also the Chairman of the NPC in the state, resigned his position and withdrew his membership of the party.

Aliyu, who described his decision as personal, announced the development in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday in Abuja.

According to him, “Among several reasons for my decision, is my desire to continue to maintain the integrity with which I left the public service after 35 years of meritorious service as executive director.

“I discovered that the political arena is not a place where I can continue to maintain that integrity with unblemished records of service”, he said.

NAN reports that Aliyu had emerged the gubernatorial candidate through a consensus voting at the party’s primary election in Lokoja on September 3.
