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