Governorship candidate of Social Democratic Party (SDP), Segun Oni has withdrawn from the Ekit Governorship race.
In a statement made available to AllNews Nigeria Segun Oni said "My Good People of Ekiti State, we regret to inform you that the SDP leadership that gave us ticket to run for Governorship is ilegal as the tenure of the NWC had expired since 2020 with no convention held to elect new officers until lastweek.
"The implications is that we area product of illegality and all other nominations done by the SDP leadership stand null and void.
"We have received legal advise from reputable legal luminaries, including 11 Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) that we are just wasting our time".
He further directed his supporters to vote for Bisi Kolawole flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
