The presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, Oby Ezekwesili, is holding no prisoners ahead of the 2019 Presidential elections as she tears into the candidates of PDP and APC.
Ezekwesili at a press conference she held in Lagos on Monday, said both ruling APC and main opposition PDP are fielding the same candidate in the 2019 elections, writes TheCable.
The co-founder of the #BBOG movement described the All Progressives Party (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Siamese twin of failure.
President Muhammadu Buhari is the candidate of the APC while Atiku Abubakar is the flagbearer of the PDP for the 2019 presidential poll.
But Ezekwesili, who is one of the five women in the race, said the PDP and APC are a single political party fielding one candidate called “Butiku”.
Going by the former Education Minister’s use of the term ‘Butiku’, drawn from the names of the both Buhari and Atiku, it could be noted that she is referring to candidates of the two most popular parties as birds of the same feather.
