Buhari Nigeria’s ‘most nepotistic, partisan leader ever’ — Ezekwesili

Mrs Obiageli Ezekwesili, presidential candidate of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari administration of shielding corrupt individuals.

Ezekwesili said this Monday while delivering a speech titled, ‘To those who say we cannot win: Unveiling the Oby Ezekwesili Roadmap to 2019’ in Lagos.

“There is no shadow of doubt: Mr Buhari is the most parochial, most nepotistic and most partisan president that Nigeria has ever seen,” she said in her speech.

“This president talks about fighting grand corruption. Please, please, give me a break! Can corruption fight corruption? Does he think we cannot see? A president that looks the other way while his friends and cronies suffocate and strangle our country?”

Ezekwesili called on Nigerians to support her candidacy saying she “is one of the very small tribe of Nigerians who have served in government but who have no allegation of corruption against them. I don’t mean court case o. I mean allegation. Zero, none.”

The former Vice President of World Bank for Africa has as a campaign cornerstone the lifting of over 80 millions Nigerians out of poverty into progress and prosperity.

Ezekwesili is a graduate of University of Lagos and Harvard University. She is a former minister of Education, and then of Solid Minerals.
