BreakingNews: Ezekwesili quits presidential race - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:
The only strong female contender to the 2019 Presidential candidate, Dr Oby Ezekwesili has quit the race, reports ITREALMS.

Ezekwesili in a series of Tweets this morning said she made her decision in a bid "to create a 'strong and viable' coalition to defeat incumbent Buhari."

As said by her, the withdrawal is to help build a coalition to defeat the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

Ezekwesili who is of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) revealed Thursday morning asserting "I decided to step down from the presidential race and focus on helping to build a Coalition for a viable alternative to the #APCPDP in the 2019 general elections," she said.

"This coalition for a viable alternative has now more than ever before become an urgent mission for and on behalf of the citizenry," Ezekwesili said.

She pointed out that "in the  past three months, I have been in private extended talks with other candidates to make a coalition possible that would allow Nigerians to exercise choice without feeling helplessly saddled with the #APCPDP."

Further she said the reactions of Nigerian citizens at home and abroad to the 2019 Presidential Debate held on Saturday 19 January 2019, and "after extensive consultations with leaders from various walks of life across the country over the past few days I have decided to step down from the presidential race and focus on helping to build a Coalition for a viable alternative to the #APCPDP in the 2019 general elections," she declared.
