JUST IN: Dr Ernest Afolabi Umakhihe Withdraws From Edo Guber Race

February 16, 2024

The Chairman
All Progressives Congress (APC)
Edo State Chapter

Attention: Emperor Jarret Tenebe (Acting Chairman)

My Dear Brother,


It is with utmost satisfaction that I write to update you and everyone, including our party leaders that has contributed to my *’Fresh Hope for Shared Prosperity’* campaign, since we embarked on our socio-political revival mission.

Like the cedar tree, the tree that we all planted on shared interest for a new and better Edo State, germinated so fast and was ready to bear fruits.

My cardinal principle in life is that of Malcolm X, which says that: “A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.”

This is why I am in politics and exactly the reason I joined the race to be elected governor of our dear state, that is in urgent need of an experienced and talented administrator.

And in the words of late sage Chief Obafemi Awolowo, “Man is the Alpha and Omega, the only dynamic means and the sole end, of all earthly human activities. All productive activities, if they are to be meaningful, equitable, just and human, should be geared to one and only one goal – the welfare of the individual.”

These dignified words energised me and my team to have toured the 18 local government areas, preaching the gospel of prosperity and development.

However, our train is making a temporary stop to engender peace and unity in our party, the All Progressivs Congress, APC.

Frankly, the hardest part about making this decision has been the fate of Edo people, who are faced with diverse challenges. They have been more agitated than I’ve ever seen some of them.

However, I have taken the decision on behalf of Dr. Ernest Afolabi Umakhihe Campaign Organization that, clearly under the present circumstances, this campaign cannot go on.

I have stepped down and ready to support any popular choice of our party.

My profound appreciation to all those who made material and otherwise contributions to our campaign.

Kindly accept my assurances and those of my friends and supporters.

*Ernest Afolabi Umakhihe PhD, OON*
