Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, a business mogul and APC presidential hopeful, has withdrawn from the 2023 presidential contest, stating his “own day will come.”
In a statement issued from his Abuja media office on Friday, Olawepo-Hashim said he made the decision following a series of consultations and reflections on current political circumstances.

He added that he was not retreating because he lacked the desire to fight for a communal ambition for a new Nigeria, which has sparked widespread support.
He also added, “Sometimes, will and resolve, energy and preparation may not be enough to engage in an encounter.”
