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Presidential election, the Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili, has withdrawn from the Presidential Race, her media office announced Thursday morning.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.

The race to the governor's seat in Lagos state has become competitive of recent as prominent politicians have obtained forms for the Alausa seat.

Though, rumours have been spreading around that the Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu oppose the second term ambition of the incumbent governor Akinwumi Ambode but seem all has been settled when Ambode collected his form in Abuja on Monday.

However, one of the political grandson of Tinubu, Babajide Sanwoolu obtained his own form yesterday, though this ought not to have been the reason for the competition but Sanwoolu being backed by the Mandate Group which is a strong political structure of Tinubu now paves way for the competition. It is to be noted that the mandate group has the presence of the 57 chairmen who are directly responsible to mobilize their people for the direct primary election.

Surprisingly, the Business guru, Femi Otedola has accepted the People Democratic Party form to contest for the post Lagos state governor. Which means that Otedola is the race will give the ruling party a tough competition in the forthcoming general election.

Olusegun Obasanjo, former President, on Wednesday said he was not backing any candidate for political office in 2019.Speaking during a courtesy visit by a youth group from Delta State, led a governorship aspirant, Frank Ufuoma Esanubi, at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, the former President said he would remain an elder statesman with passion for a greater Nigeria.Obasanjo also noted that his Coalition for Nigeria (CN) movement was to galvanise the people to appreciate their interests and power.He said, In the year 2015, I said I would no longer participate in partisan politics. And I still stand by my decision. Everybody, irrespective of his or her political affiliation is free to come here for advice, I will gladly do that.I have no candidate, whatsoever, for any political office. I just believe that things must be done differently in Nigeria to get different result.If you study our transitions since the colonial era, they have all taken place without taking the people of the grassroots into consideration. So, CNM is about the people at the grassroots.It is a socio-economic movement where youth and women, especially, will be given opportunity to appreciate their interests and power. Unlike before, I believe we must put the horse before the cart.If the system and the platform sync, I believe Nigeria will get there. And like I said, the moment the Coalition gets involved in candidate sponsoring or participates in partisan politics, I will opt out of it.

As the electoral battle between the two leading political parties in the country is drawing near in Edo state, the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar who was the first runner up for the post of the presidency at the last year general election has directed his 150 support groups in the state to Gov. Godwin Obaseki’s governorship campaign organisation in Edo.

Atiku made this known in a statement made available to newsmen on Saturday in Benin. The statement was signed by Mr Oladimeji Fabiyi, Deputy Director of the defunct Atiku Support Group/Mobilization Presidential Campaign Organisation.

It quoted Abubakar as directing that the 150 independent support groups in Edo be immediately activated in support of Obaseki, PDP’s flag bearer in the election.

It stated further: “The former Vice President, as a major stakeholder of the PDP, considers it expedient to put in place winning structures and machinery that will guarantee total victory for the party in Edo.

“We need to complete the circle in the south-south region that naturally and originally belonged the PDP.

“Having received the directive with joy and enthusiasm, I have no doubt that all our support groups in Edo will be very glad to receive this news and run with the directive of Atiku Abubakar for the benefit of Obaseki and the PDP,” it stated.
