In less than 24 days to the 2019 Presidential election, the Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili, has withdrawn from the Presidential Race, her media office announced Thursday morning.



 

According to 'TheCable', Ezekwesili will now devote her time "to help build a coalition to defeat the All Progressive Congress and the People's Democratic Party in the February 16, election", Ozioma Ubabukoh, the spokes person of her campaign organization, said in a press statement shared with 'TheCable'.

 

It is still unclear who the former minister of education will support, but she previously tried to get the trio of Kingsley Moghalu, Omoyele Swore and Fela Durotoye to agree on a consensus candidate among themselves.

 

After Durotoye emerged in a ballot, the other candidates refused to step down and Ezekwesili herself joined the race. Her decision to quit followed "extensive discussions with Nigerians at home and the Diaspora".

 

"This decision followed extensive consultation with leaders from various walks of life across the country over the past few days. I deem it necessary for me to focus on helping to build a veritable coalition to ensure a viable alternative to the APC,PDP in the forthcoming elections", Ubabukoh said.

 

Ubabukoh thanked Nigerians who supported Ezekwesili, saying that "every money donated to the campaign and funds spent will be accounted for in the coming days."

 

After the Presidential debate which held on Saturday, January 19, 2019, where the candidates of ACPN, ANN, YPP, attended, some Nigerians advised them to opt for  collision in order to defeat Buhari of APC and Atiku of PDP in the election.
