The Senator representing Bayelsa East constituency, Ben Murray Bruce, has withdrawn from the senatorial race.
Ben Bruce who revealed this in a letter posted on his Facebook page thanked God and the people of Brass, Bayelsa East Senatorial District for the opportunity to serve them for four years.
According to him, his decision was based on the realization of an existing local rotational arrangement of over 20 years, by which the Senatorial seat rotates per local government area among the three councils for four years in the Senatorial District, adding that as a man of honour and for the interest of his people and the party, it was best he resigns from the race.
