Oby Ezekwesili gives up presidential race, states reasons
The Presidential candidate under the auspices of the Allied Congress Party Of Nigeria (ACPN), Dr Obiageli Ezekwesili has abdicated her interest to run the presidential race in the forthcoming elections, DailyleakBlog confirms.
Taking to her Twitter handle on Thursday, 24th of January, the former minister revealed she’s relinquishing her interest in the presidential elections that is scheduled for February 16th, to establish a coalition that will defeat the All Progressive’s Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) .
According to Oby, her decision to halt her campaign to form an alliance that will defeat these parties, is in view of the reactions of Nigerians to the 2019 presidential debate which was held on Saturday, 19th January, 2019.
