Oby Ezekwesili blows hot over ACPN endorsing Buhari

Oby Ezekwesili blows hot over ACPN endorsing Buhari

Oby Ezekwesili hit at her former party APCN over its endorsement of President Buhari after she stepped down from the Presidential race and left them. The party had earlier claimed that she was using the party’s platform to negotiate the post of minister of finance.

Ezekwesili in a signed statement lashed out at ACPN’s decision to go ahead and endorse President Muhammadu Buhari in next month’s general election.

Ezekwesili went further to say that she would clear issues at a world press conference which would hold as soon as she comes back from her trip to Mexico.

Her statements read: “Some hours ago, I arrived far flung Cabo in Mexico where our Albert Einstein’s Genius100 Visionaries meeting is holding. I was delighted to read reactions of real patriots to my announcement that I have decided to withdraw from the 2019 presidential race and end my membership of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN). I have also seen the reaction of ACPN leadership to my decision.

“Fortunately, they have divinely helped me by making the Nigerian public now fully understand why I had to swiftly depart from their midst. How could I upon realising the divergence of values and vision with the leadership of the party continue to stand on such a political platform? My abiding vision has been to mobilise citizens to disrupt the old order politics of APC-PDP.

“Nigeria and Nigerians deserve a New Order of ethical, competent and capable leadership. I had earlier assumed the ACPN was aligned with me to offer that until it proved otherwise. The values and vision divergence with the party was a key factor that triggered my withdrawal from the presidential race on their ticket prompting me to dissociate immediately in order to help build a coalition for Good Governance. It is why I was instant in sacrificing my candidacy to uphold my values by withdrawing.

“The party’s decision to immediately today endorse the candidate of APC, which was announced by my erstwhile VP candidate who is also the Chairman of ACPN was their classic political entrepreneurship in full display for Nigerians to see. It is instructive.

“The party leadership’s transactional approach to politics began to manifest in their attitude following after the convention that adopted me as their presidential candidate. All who know me can attest that I detest transactional mindset. I would have none of such and therefore extremely delighted to part ways after a tumultuous three months of hoping that the ACPN leadership would elevate to the new values of disruptive politics that one had desired for and preached within the party.

“As for the defamatory statements made against my person by the ACPN leadership in their malicious statement, I want Nigerians to know that there is NO IOTA of truth in any of them. Everything ACPN wrote or said of the campaign donations is a fabrication and outright lies. Our campaign was conducted with the highest level of transparency and accountability with impeccable evidence. I know and can guarantee that at all times because these standards firmly underpin my commitment to lasting values and professionalism.

“Only those who desperately wish to believe falsehoods would lend any credence to such puerile accusations by the leadership of ACPN. Only those who pretend ignorance of my legendary and uncompromising passion for accountability would give heed to such baseless statement.

“I have declined any interviews until my return to Nigeria upon which I shall hold a World Press Conference to engage Nigerians on the actions I shall take even as we present a full report of our three-month-old campaign for the 2019 presidential election to the public.

“I want to again thank all who supported us in the last three months with their talent, time and treasure to run a formidable campaign. Without your support, we would never have attained the height #Hope2019 achieved. You gave our Disruptive Campaign real VALUE.

“We shall at the World Press Conference also provide insights into the citizen’s movement that we are energised and committed to building. There is no end to our zeal to end the reign of Bad Politics in our country.

“Finally, take it from me that WE shall definitely build the Coalition force that will terminate the poverty escalating governance of the two dominant parties in the 2019 election.

“We are citizens of Nigeria. And we are resolved,” the statement read.
