The presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, ACPN, Oby Ezekwesili, has revealed how she would use her campaign strategies to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The former Minister of Education explained that she intends to leverage on her being the most qualified of all the candidates and most ready for the presidential job to defeat other contestants.
The co-converner of the #BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, group said this during a press conference in Lagos, yesterday.
The activist also stated that both Buhari and Atiku were similar and not different because “Buhari’s All Progressive Congress (APC) and Atiku’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are Siamese twins of failure and destruction.”
She said: “There is no lesser evil in ‘BuTiku; BuTiku’ are members of the same party. Attempting to choose between these two is like asking one to choose between death by poison or death by gunshot. God forbid. We cannot reject one oppressor and hand over to another oppressor. We do not love bondage. We do not enjoy suffering; God in heaven forbid.
“I just laugh when I hear some people say our citizens’ movement will split opposition votes. But the PDP is not in opposition to the APC. The candidate of the PDP has over the past 14 years gone from PDP to AC, AC to PDP, PDP to APC and now back to PDP. These people are brothers and sisters of iniquity and impoverishment, merchants of failure and disappointment.
“Don’t believe that 419! They are both part of a political ruling class that has held us bound, manipulated and diminished us for decades. Now they are auditioning to extend their streak of failure for another four years? God really forbid!
“The real opponent that the Nigerian people have in 2019 is this old political order that takes and takes and takes, and never replenishes anything.”
