Common sense Senator, Ben Murray Bruce representing Bayelsa east, has withdrawn from the race to represent his constituency in 2019.
Mr Bruce made this known in a letter he wrote to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday.
The senatorial primary election of PDP is scheduled for Tuesday. Bruce attributed his withdrawal from the race to the need to allow someone else from the constituency fly the banner of the PDP in 2019.

“I thank God and the good people of Brass, Bayelsa East Senatorial District who offered me the golden opportunity four years ago to represent them and the state in the Senate, Nigeria’s highest lawmaking chamber. It is without doubt that I have tried to discharge my duties as a legislator and representative of my people creditably to the best of my ability so far.
My voice has been very loud on the issues that matter to our people and our country at all time. My support to our party, my people and state government is unquestionable. I am humbled that the national leadership of my party supported by the State chapter in appreciation of my efforts offered to support my reelection to the senate to continue my service.
