2019: I Am David And I Will Defeat 'BUTIKU' Goliath - Oby Ezekwesili
The presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, ACPN, Oby Ezekwesili says she will run and win the 2019 presidential election without the support of any god-father.
When asked about her thoughts on her former boss, Olusegun Obasanjo supporting Atiku; she replied saying "Obasanjo has only one vote. The majority of Nigerians will support and vote for me".
The former Minister says there are only two candidates heading into the presidential poll in February. BUTIKU and herself.
By BUTIKU she is referring to both the Buhari and Atiku campaign groups which she says are clueless on what to do with her special weapon - data.
"We know the sleeping voters who are yet to be activated and our mission through our massive data network is to find each and everyone of them who have their cards but have refused to vote.
"We will have canvassers. We will have small donors. It is already happening.
"BUTIKU is already scheming on how to continue ruining this country from 2019 and you want to hand it over to them.
"Now is the time for us to ensure that all their scheming falls down flat. Even if you insist that we must wait till 2023, that long term sight starts this minute", she added.
"This country has barely 4 months not to talk of 4 years to continue experimenting on this path of failure.
"We are on the very edge of destruction and we are fiddling while it burns. Do you think this is a game?"
Oby Ezekwesili first declared her intention to run for office on October 6, 2018. She has continued to call for the rescue of the remain Chibok school girls and other Nigerians being held in Boko Haram's captivity.
