Mr Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Kwara has not withdrawn from the race .
According to the statement being circulated, Abdulrasaq was said to have stepped down due to an allegation, now in court, that he forged his School certificate.
“We regret to announce that our candidate Abdulrahaman Abdulraq stepped down due to WAEC scandal in court; we direct our supporters to go for Accord Party. O to ge,” the statement read.
The candidate himself in a tweet has also debunked the rumour:
“I have NOT withdrawn from the Kwara gubernatorial race. Beware of fake news. Kindly call in to tell your friends and family in Kwara to go out and VOTE APC. There’s no going back from this, Kwara State must be freed from the dynasty. Help spread this message with your RT”, Abdulrazaq wrote.
. Olawuyi said that the message was borne out of frustration and panic that the APC would emerge victorious in the governorship and state house of assembly elections.
He called on APC supporters not to be distracted by the news of the withdrawal, saying that such distractions were normal in a democratic contest. Olawuyi called on the people of Kwara to discountenance the message and go out en-masse to vote for the APC.
