Oby Ezekwesili, Explains Why She Stepped Down, From Contesting For The Seat Of The Presidency

Female Presidential candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, has cleared her reasons, for stepping down from the presidency contest. 

She shared her reasons on her twitter handle some hours ago.

Read below:

" Presidency, following the reasons of Nigeria citizens, at home and abroad, to the 2019 presidential debate held on Saturday 19 January 2019. And after extensive consultations with leaders from various walks of life across the country over the past few days.. 

I have decided to step down from the presidential race and focus on helping to build a coalition for a viable alternative to the APC and PDP in the 2019 general elections.

This coalition for a viable alternative has now, more than ever before became an urgent mission for and on behalf of the citizenry; 

Over the past three months, I have been in private extended talks with other candidates to make a coalition possible, that would allow Nigerians to exercise choice without feeling helplessly saddled with APC PDP. 

In doing so, I have not hesitated to offer my willingness to step down my candidacy, in order to facilitate the emergency of a strong and viable alternative, behind  which Nigerians can line up in our collective search for a new beginning. 

My commitments in this regard has been consistent and in consonance with my agreement, at the request of the then aspirants under PACT in 2018, to supervise their internal selection process as about building this alternative force. 

Despite disagreements with the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria on these and other issues, i have decided that it is now necessary to show by action and example, my determination on this issue by stepping down my candidacy and focusing on building the coalition once and for all. 

We have no right to allow citizens give in to despair, we will #Fight4Naija together, and prove to all that the mess that has now become the political class will not be allowed to destroy our spirits and the nation. 

We are also determined to ensure that the message keeps resonating that if we are to get the best that we deserve, we must fight for it. 

From last year, I have made it clear to the nation that Nigeria has always had a 20 year cycle of change — 1959, 1979, and 1999.2019 begins another 20 year cycle, and together with Nigerians of good will. 

I stand ready to play my part to ensure that we do not miss this opportunity to sing a new song, we have no more time to waste, let's get to work! "

Do you think her reasons are justified?
