PDP primaries: Maku withdraws from governorship race in Nasarawa
Mr. Labaran Maku, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Nasarawa State, has withdrawn from the race.
Maku, who moved to the PDP three months ago, said he decided to drop out of the governorship race after consulting his family, friends, and key stakeholders in the state.
The former minister was running for governor of Nasarawa State against General Nuhu Bala Angbazo, rtd, and David Ombugadu, both from Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area.
Meanwhile, investigation has revealed that after delegates from four local government areas voted other candidates without Maku getting a single vote, he decided to step aside.
Political analysts believe that the withdrawal of Maku from the race would be a workover for the current governor, AA Sule of the APC in the general election in 2023.
