Following his last minute withdrawal from the race Olusegun Dada, an aspirant for the position of national youth leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has explained his decision to withdraw from the race.
The tearful Dada explained his withdrawal hours after he t withdrew from the race at the party’s just concluded convention.
it would be recalled that he had earlier refused to step down for Dayo Israel, an aspirant backed by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos governor.
In a statement posted on his Twitter page on Sunday, Dada said his personal aspiration is secondary to the decision of the party.
“What happened a few hours ago at the Eagle Square is a clear indication that the party will always be supreme,” the post reads.
“No aspiration is bigger than the party hence my stepping aside to ensure the party exercises her most preferred mechanism in selecting the youth leader of the party as well as other positions in the party structure via consensus.
“I deeply appreciate everyone who has supported this cause in their very important ways. My profound gratitude goes out to my team for running an issue based campaign, especially our policy plans and implementation; your sleepless nights count a lot, I am very proud of you all.
“Every political event exposes one to superior arguments and decision making, yet, I will not relent fighting for the interests of the youths within the confines of my capacity.
“I am humble in victory and gracious in defeat.
