Dada Olusegun, an aspirant for the office of national youth leader of the All Progressives Congress, has withdrawn from the race.
Olusegun who announced his withdrawal in the early hours of Sunday at the party’s 2022 National Convention held at Eagle Square, Abuja, fought back tears.
He is one of several aspirants who backed out of various party positions with respect to the consensus arrangement of the party as captured in the unity list released late Saturday.
