Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili, says she is contesting the 2019 elections to correct the nation’s political anomaly and usher in good governance.
Ezekwesili made this known in an interview with newsmen while canvassing for votes in Onitsha on Thursday, December 27, NAN reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the former minister of education, who was flanked by some female supporters during the campaign tagged ‘walk of women’, described herself as a candidate with the requisite attributes to develop Nigeria.
Ezekwesili said previous administrations were purposeless and appeared not to be a government in place for the people but for selfish purposes.
“Our country has been badly managed year after year, political parties after political parties.
“I came to the conclusion that our politics is the problem, because politicians only see presidency as a kind of personal trophy for them. For me, this election is not an election to basically become president.
“The low level of performance of Nigeria must end and for us to end it, we must bring in a new momentum into governance. I represent that new momentum and I am the credible alternative," she said.
