Oby Ezekwesili’s party withdraws Support for Her, endorses Buhari



Oby Ezekwesili's party ACPN denounces Her, endorses Buhari for 2nd Term | BellaNaijaThe Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) has denounced their candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, after she withdrew from the presidential race.

Ezekwesili, on Thursday morning, announced that she’s withdrawing from the race and pushing for the creation of a coalition.

In her statement, Ezekwesili shared her party disagreed with her decision, and her party, in a statement, according to Vanguard, have now denounced her.

The statement went further to endorse President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in office. The statement read:

She only preempted the decision we would have reached today which was to withdraw her candidacy and give to somebody else.

Our presidential nomination ticket is N10 million and expression of interest is N500, 000 but when she came she said she did not have money, that she only had N100, 000 and because we wanted to encourage women, we gave her our platform.

The reason for calling this press conference is to let the world know about the presidential aspiration of Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, which in actual fact, is not the truth. We have been put into confidence by several of her aides one of which is named lyinoluwa Aboyeji also known as Maureen, that she only wanted to use the platform of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria ACPN to negotiate to be Nigeria’s Finance minister. This she did not deem fit to inform the party whose mandate she is holding.

If you will observe, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, is the only presidential candidate who was so militant in her campaign without any tangible thing on the ground to indicate any seriousness in the prosecution of her campaign. No campaign secretariat, billboard or great commitment on the ground to indicate any seriousness.

It is on this ground that the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria ACPN is withdrawing support for her presidential aspiration and endorsing the second term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari to take Nigeria to the next level.

We also seek this medium to inform our former presidential candidate Dr Ezekwesili to return to the party all the property in her possession especially the various donations that she has been receiving from all over the world. Whatever she had received belongs to the party and we must render account to the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC. So, it is mandatory. We are aware of all the accounts she and her aides had opened for this election to which donations were made.

    Politics…. It’s so disgusting how character defamation is the currency. The statement from her party is outright childish. Some money seems to have exchanged hands for all these stories to suddenly come up and distract people. Nigerians should try to kick fossils and ancestors out.

    Well, this is embarrassing…..Candidate and party in disagreement. It is more embarrassing that a party will endorse the current president knowing fully well he hasn’t lived up to par., and if he has, why bring forth your party to begin with…smh!
