Dr Oby Ezekwesili has dismissed insinuations that she’s contesting in the 2019 presidential election to merely make a statement, boasting instead that she’s in the competition to win it.
While speaking during an interview with Pulse on Thursday, October 11, 2018, the former Minister of Education said she’s committed towards taking down the dominant political class.
She said, “You think I’m doing this for jokes? I’m sorry, I’m running to win.
“There are two classes of people running in this election: the political class (the old order) and the Nigerian citizens. I’m the candidate for the Nigerian citizens. These two so-called dominant parties are really the party of the political class.
“What I’m doing is to get into this landscape to disrupt the old politics. We’re tired of the old politics.
“I’m not running for president to make a statement, I’m ruuning to win so that we can build a different Nigeria.”
