One of the aspirants under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the governorship ticket in Edo State, Ernest Umakhihe, has refuted claims that he has stepped aside from the primary election scheduled to hold next month.

Umakhihe insisted that he has not withdrawn from the race and urged his supporters across the state to remain steadfast on his aspirations to become the next occupant of the Government House on Dennis Osadebey Avenue in Benin City.

His official statement came amidst confusion in the ranks and leadership of the APC on the true position of the message he had earlier sent out.

But according to a statement signed by the aspirant and made available to Daily Trust yesterday, Umakhihe, who is one of the last six aspirants that have been cleared by the Professor Julius Ihonvbere Committee set up by the party hierarchy said his earlier message was misrepresented in the social media.
