Ogoda who had previously claimed that the had been ‘rigged out’ during the ODM nominations said he stepped aside in respect to the party’s decision and had no bone to chew with the party.
"I have accepted the verdict of the party and hereby urge my supporters to support the party to ensure victory for ODM and Cord in the forth-coming General Election,” he said.
