”Atiku can’t bring the desired change in Nigeria” — Oby Ezekwesili is saying
Former Minister of Education and presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili, says former Vice-President and PDP presidential candidate in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, cannot bring about the change Nigeria needs for sustainable development if he is given the mandate.
Speaking during a Channels TV interview on Monday, Oby said that Atiku is not any better than President Buhari as they both belong to the same class of failed politicians. Ezekwsili said neither the PDP nor APC can bring the desired change.
“No, he can’t bring the change we are referring to. That is the old politics. Nigeria is ripe for new politics. I am talking of a new nation where sacrificial leadership is what we put at the centre of where people lead and that citizens first, not politicians first, becomes the mantra of everyone in a position of leadership.” she said
She described the APC and PDP as “siamese twins of failure”,
“Nigeria is at stake should you go with any of these two parties. These parties are the Siamese twins of failure. We have no reason to vote to continue to fail. Even the divine is tired of seeing Nigeria fail. What is at stake, children who die when they should not be dying under the watch of a leader that came under the grand swell of being a tried and tested general that could work everything to give security to people. What is at stake is that the normalising of killings across the country will simply just become our way. What is at stake is that corruption becomes known permanently as what we are known for as a country.”
