Ahead of the 2019 general elections, a front-line Presidential contender on the platform of the Labour Party, LP, Sam Nwanti, has withdrawn from the Presidential race, declaring support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.
The American-based Detective from Mbieri, in Mbaitoli Council Area of Imo State, dropped his ambition in an interactive session with Newsmen, in Owerri, Imo State, on Saturday.
Nwanti disclosed that he withdrew from the race, to boost the re-election bid of President Buhari, in the 2019 elections, while he prepares for the 2023 Presidential race.
“Today, I withdraw from contesting for the Presidential race on the platform of Labour Party, and back to APC.
I am back to APC to support President Buhari for his second term bid”, because he needs our support to get things aright once again. I will help the All Progressives Congress and Buhari-led administration fight corruption; and as the only Detective who is contesting in 2019, it may split the support of President Muhammadu Buhari”, he added.
