The9jaTREND reports that Hon. Johnson Agbonayinma in a press statement made available to newsmen stated that the reason for suspending his guber ambition is as a result of the tragic development of his 23 years old and very promising son, Osazuwa Michael Agbonayinma who was fatally shot in Houston, Texas, United States of America.

According to Agbonayinma, “Presently, my family and I are highly devastated. And I am not in the right frame of mind to continue any serious political campaign at this time. Consequently, after due consultations and consideration, I am suspending my Gubernatorial Campaign at this time. We need some quiet time to grieve and heal.”

While expressing his sincere gratitude to all and sundry for the overwhelming moral, financial, and spiritual support in his journey so far, Hon. Agbonayinma  hope that the upcoming APC Gubernatorial Primaries are conducted on a level playing field where every aspirant is accorded a free, fair and equal chance and opportunity to participate in the primaries.

“And as a loyal party man, I call on all leaders and supporters of our great party, APC, to fall behind the party flag bearer that would eventually emerge from a free, fair and credible process such that APC will go into the Governorship election as a united party,” he added.
