Ehiozuwa Agbonayinma, one of the 12 All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirants in Edo State, has officially withdrawn from the race following the tragic loss of his 23-year-old son, Osazuwa Agbonayinma, who was fatally shot and killed in Houston, Texas, USA.

Agbonayinma announced his decision to step down during a meeting with his supporters and party members in the Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area.

Agbonayinma expressed deep gratitude for the overwhelming support he received during his gubernatorial campaign and acknowledged the positive reception from well-wishers.

However, the devastating loss of his son has prompted Agbonayinma to suspend his political activities, emphasizing that he is not in the right frame of mind to continue a serious campaign at this time.

Agbonayinma urged his supporters to stay united and back whoever emerges as the APC flagbearer in the forthcoming primary election. With Agbonayinma’s withdrawal, 11 aspirants remain in the race for the APC governorship primary in Edo State, scheduled for Saturday.
