“Statement on Declining the Role of Director of New Media for the APC Edo State Governorship Campaign Council:

“I am honored to have been offered the position of Director of New Media within the All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council for the forthcoming Edo State gubernatorial election. This role is significant, and I am deeply grateful for the trust and confidence placed in me. However, after careful consideration, I have decided to decline this offer.

“A key consideration in my decision is the potential impact on my working relationship with a colleague who was initially considered for this role. Accepting the position could create an uncomfortable situation, and I prioritize maintaining a harmonious work environment. I have communicated my decision to the relevant leaders before the final announcement.

“As a person of faith, I strive to live by principles that promote peace, integrity, and goodwill. I do not wish to hold grudges or engage in actions that could generate bad blood between myself and others. It is essential for me to act in a manner that aligns with my values and fosters positive relationships.

“Additionally, I am currently recovering from a devastating accident that unfortunately claimed the lives of five people and had a debilitating impact on me. My primary focus at this time is on my health and well-being. Engaging in a demanding role such as the Director of New Media in governorship election could potentially hinder my recovery process. I must prioritize my healing and ensure I am in the best possible condition before taking on significant responsibilities.

“I want to assure the party and our candidate that my decision to decline this offer does not diminish my commitment to the APC and our collective vision for Edo State. I will continue to support the party and our candidate in any capacity that aligns with my current situation and capabilities. I am confident that our team will emerge victorious in the forthcoming election and wish everyone the best in their endeavors.

“Thank you for your understanding and support”.
