As Oby Ezekwesili quits the presidential race.
Excerpts from Oby Ezekwesili’s withdrawal speech:
““My commitment to this promising political recalibration has been consistent and in consonance with my agreement, at the request of candidates under the Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT) arrangement in 2018, when I consented to supervise the internal selection process as an outside observer passionate about building an alternative force.”

While this may seem a great and patriotic move by the Former minster, some members of her party, the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria(ACPN) have claimed that she was never “serious” with the campaign in the first place. Some allegations have even arisen suggesting that leaders of her party are looking to endorse President Muhammadu Buhari, the incumbent President as their official candidate in the February Polls.
