Ahead of All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary slated for June 22, a governorship aspirant in Edo State, Hon. Osaro Obazee, has stepped down from the race.

He stepped down and endorsed Osagie Ize-Iyamu despite being cleared by the screening panel to contest ahead of Monday’s party primary.
