Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has emerged as as the Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN). The former Vice President of the World Bank, confirming her candidacy said she made the decision in response to the All Progressives Congress(APC) and Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)
Many Nigerians received the news with mixed feelings. While some urged Mr Ezekwesili to form a coalition with the likes of Kingsley Moghalu, Fela Durotoye, Sowore, others straight out said she would never win. Only a few supported the decision by the Co-BringBackOurGirls(BBOG) convener.
See reactions below
It is not too late for Duke, Ezekwesili, Moghalu, Durotoye, Olawepo and others to explore the possibility of a Joint ticket or a consensus candidate. They might want to give PACT another attempt.

Realistically these four can't run against themselves and win against APC and PDP so I wish they can all come together under a single tent and knock this old people out
Lets Say no to what PDP AND APC Are offering us

Honestly, seeing that Oby Ezekwesili is running for President has given me the hope I never thought I’d have for Nigeria again and my heart is glad.
Never has a slogan been so true for me ❤️ #Hope2019

In as much as I would have loved to vote Ezekwesili or any other younger aspirant, the bitter truth is that any vote against Atiku will only strengthen Buhari. I'm scared of wasting my vote and I want Buhari out by all means. He's holding down most parts of the North already.
