The Ifeoluwa Oyedele Campaign Organization in a release, signed by its Director of Media and Publicity, Yomi Adebayo appreciated the teeming supporters and sea of admirers of Engr Oyedele for their love, loyalty and steadfastness since the commencement of the gubernatorial aspiration of Engr. Ife Oyedele.

The statement disclosed that Engr. Oyedele is convinced that party supremacy, the unity of the APC, peace and stability as well as the overall development of Ondo State are higher ideals than the pursuit of personal ambitions, "thus, after due consultation and in difference to the noble interventions of the leaders of our Party across all levels to ensure unity within the APC family in Ondo State, the IFEOLUWA Oyedele Campaign Organization wants to use this medium to announce to all our supporters that we are withdrawing from the governorship race and throwing our weight behind the incumbent Governor, HE Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu.
