“Enough is enough, I shall actively campaign against APC and PDP in the 2019 elections” – Oby Ezekwesili

A former minister for education, Oby Ezekwesili, has said that her political agenda for 2019 is to stop the two major political parties in Nigeria – the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP – from winning state and national elections.

Mrs. Ezekwesili, who is also a co-leader of the #BringBackOurGirls movement, tweeted on Thursday that the essence of her new agenda was to “disrupt and end the political and governance stagnation and retrogression that our cyclical low equilibrium political Russian roulette has cost our country and people.

“Enough is enough,” she said, through her Twitter handle @obyezeks.

“My political agenda is simple. I shall actively campaign against APC and PDP in the 2019 elections except in rare cases where they field new minds with a strong record of public interest.

“I shall actively campaign for the best candidates of all other parties in the elections.

“My individual effort to campaign against APC and PDP in the 2019 elections may not amount to much, but it is at least a definite expression of my personal conviction.

“My conviction is that it is time to end the tyranny of rulership of a wicked minority political elite class,” she wrote.

Mrs. Ezekwesili’s position is a reflection of the general discontentment among Nigerians against the country’s political leadership.

Nigeria, with its main earnings coming from oil, is Africa’s biggest economy. Yet most of its population still live in abject poverty.

The historic defeat of the ruling PDP in the 2015 elections ended the party’s 16 years of political dominance and gave the people hope of a new beginning.

But President Muhammadu Buhari and his party – the APC – have been severely criticised as being incapable of tackling the nation’s many challenges, including the killings perpetrated around the country by different groups other than Boko Haram.

Mrs. Ezekwesili, in her one of tweets, described the APC and the PDP as “twin brothers”.

“This for me is the #YearOfTheOfficeOfTheCitizen when all citizens lift their red card.

“Whether many other citizens feel the way one feels about our political status quo does not matter. Standing up for what I believe is what one was raised to epitomize.

“It is sickening to watch the repetition of a similar pattern of bad behavior by our political class,” she said.

  1. I believe very strongly that an intelligent, highly educated and widely traveled woman like you will be doing more harm than good if you deploy your God-given talents to championing the cause of opposing Buhari’s 2nd term bid.
    You can continue to be an unbiased opposition party from without than going out to oppose Buhari in 2019, but the decision is yours. Let me conclude by asking you a point-blank question, hoping you will answer it with all sincerity.
    Which government is better between Obasanjo’s administration under whom you served as Minister and this current administration.
    As an erudite and astute economist, take some time to reflect on how our economy was under your former boss with crude oil selling, for the most part of his administration at over 100 USD, to Buhari who inherited a badly damaged economy, and crude selling at 37 USD when he assumed office on May 29, 2015.
    Mind you the oil price since then has never gone above 70 USD, yet our reserve has grown astronomically and many social intervention programs are going on along with unprecedented physical development.
    Haba, Madam, give Buhari and APC some credit. Mind you I am not a politician, neither am I seeking any political office or favor, but what I just crave is to be able to develop to my God-given potentials in my chosen career and talent in my country, and this can only happen if we have leaders who are not looters and thieves like your former boss, Olusegun Obasanjo, who only care about the well-being of himself, his children and great great great grandchildren who are yet unborn, heaping up for them our money and commonwealth he had greedily acquired.

  2. What is the option for APC and PDP ?
    Can we Form a new political party without all the thieves that have stolen all the resources that would have developed our country like any other country
