Oby Ezekwesili withdraws from 2019 presidential race, ‘Too late a call’ – Nigerians Reacts

‘Too late a call’ - Nigerians React To Oby Ezekwesili’s Withdrawal From Presidential Election

Oby Ezekwesili has just announced her withdrawal from 2019 presidential race saying she has opted to help build a coalition to defeat the All Progressives Congress and the People’s Democratic Party in the February 16, 2019 election.
Explaining her action in a series of tweets this morning, she said the action was also prompted by an examination of the country’s electoral environment sequel to the 2019 presidential debate of Saturday, January 19, 2019.
See her full statement below…
Following 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.
This coalition for a viable alternative has now more than ever before become an urgent mission for and on behalf of the citizenry.
Over 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.

In doing so, I have not hesitated to offer my willingness to step down my candidacy in order to facilitate the emergence of a strong and viable alternative behind which Nigerians can line up in our collective search for a new beginning.
My commitment in this regard has been consistent and in consonance with my agreement, at the request of then aspirants under PACT in 2018, to supervise their internal selection process as an outside observer passionate about building this alternative force.
Despite disagreements within the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria on these and other issues, I have decided that it is now necessary to show by action and example my determination on this issue by stepping down my candidacy and focusing on building the coalition once and for all.
We have no right to allow citizens give in to despair. We will #Fight4Naija together, and prove to all that the mess that has now become the political class will not be allowed to destroy our spirits and the nation.
We are also determined to ensure that the message keeps resonating that our beloved country deserves better, and that if we are to get the best that we deserve, we must fight for it.

Nigerians woke up to the news of one of the contenders for next month’s presidential election, Oby Ezekwesili withdrawing from the race. In the statement she released on Twitter and her website, she explained her decision to quit the process as proof of her determination to right the wrongs in the country by supporting a coalition that can defeat the incumbent. “My commitment in this regard has been consistent and in consonance with my agreement, at the request of candidates under Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT) in 2018, to supervise their internal selection process as an outside observer passionate about building this alternative force. Despite disagreements within the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria on these and other issues, I have decided that it is now necessary to show by action and example my determination on this issue by stepping down my candidacy and focusing on building the coalition once and for all,” the statement read in part.
Her withdrawal, only a few weeks before the election has generated multiple reactions from observers and regular Nigerians alike. Here are a few as seen on Twitter.
I have always believed that leadership is about service & sacrifice & today, I would like to commend Dr. (Mrs) Oby Ezekwesili @obyezeks for leading the charge to forming a viable coalition to presenting a Consensus Candidate for the 2019 Presidential elections.

Madam Oby thank you for making me lose 250k from @Stalyf and another 50k from @YemieFASH
But on the other hand, I have a newfound respect for both men. They warned me and predicted Oby Ezekwesili stepping down. They saw this coming

Oby Ezekwesili's step down is too late a call, she should have done it it since.

I've always said it, the easiest way to defeat this dominance, is only if Oby Ezekwesili , Fela Durotoye, Kingsley Moghalu and Omoyele Sowore all join forces, instead of sharing their votes amongst one another. After all, they are all in it for the progress of the nation.

Madam oby never took this presidential race serious anyways, so it's no breaking news.

The plan was for Buhari to miss the debate, so Oby Ezekwesili and co can make the debate about Atiku, do him dirty, discredit him, thus creating content for days for those BMC idiots.

Again, Atiku did well by missing that debate.
