Adome told URN that he was persuaded by elders to drop from the race to allow Remigio complete his unfinished projects in the county. "We had a meeting with the elders who actually demanded that I step down to allow Remigio to complete his work. So as a child who respects elders I could not argue with the elders who have allowed me to contest in the 2026 elections," he said.

Remigio Achia, the incumbent Piano County Member Of Parliament in Nabilatuk district has joined the growing list of legislators who have bounced back unopposed.

“The Commission received and considered withdrawal notice from the candidate by the names Charles Adome from the parliamentary race for Pian constituency. Accordingly as a returning officer for Nabilatuk Electoral Commission, pursuit to the parliamentary election act 2005 ( as amended) section 19A, I declare Achia Remigio duly elected Member of parliament for Pian constituency in Nabilatuk district with the effect from 14th/ January 2021," the letter reads.


Adome told URN that he was persuaded by elders to drop from the race to allow Remigio complete his unfinished projects in the county. "We had a meeting with the elders who actually demanded that I step down to allow Remigio to complete his work. So as a child who respects elders I could not argue with the elders who have allowed me to contest in the 2026 elections," he said.
