By Chibuike Nwabuko

Abuja (Sundiata Post) – A frontline aspirant in the ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC), Mr. Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim had, after series of consultations and reflections on current developments in the political scene,

bowed out of the 2023 presidential contest, saying his “own day will come.”

In a statement from his media office in Abuja on Friday, Mr. Olawepo-Hashim explained that though his decision to contest was to offer a national platform for progressive forces who believe in the necessity and possibility of a new Nigeria, capable of securing itself from internal and external threats, and bring prosperity to all her people, “certain developments have necessitated my withdrawal from the 2023 presidential race, as a result of which I did not pick the nomination form.”

He added that he is “retreating not out of the lack of will to fight for our resolve and collective aspiration for a New Nigeria, a struggle which has attracted enormous support. Sometimes WILL and RESOLVE, Energy and Preparation may not be enough to engage in an encounter.”
