Victor Okon, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the March 12 Akwa Ibom rerun election, has withdrawn his candidacy.

Okon, vying for the Oron/Udung Uko constituency, made his decision known at a news conference held in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state capital, on Friday.

He said his withdrawal from the Saturday Akwa Ibom House of Assembly rerun election was personal.

“After due consultation with my family and immediate constituency, I have decided to withdraw from the rerun election fixed for March 12, 2016 for very personal reasons,” he said.

“I have also already resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC). This is my will and final decision on this matter.”

He thanked the people of Oron/Udung Uko state constituency for their unflinching support and assistance throughout his sojourn and during the contest and his political career.

Okon contested the Oron Udung Uko state constituency election on the platform of APC in the April 11, 2015 election and lost to Effiong Bassey of the PDP.
