Politics Africa: Ezekwesili revealed why she resigned from ACPN and why they picked her as their candidate


Ezekwesili revealed why she resigned from ACPN and why they picked her as their candidate
One time minister of Education, Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili has revealed the reason her party, Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, (ACPN) picked her as their presidential candidate, noting that they thought she had looted funds from previous administration as a former minister.
The Former Presidential candidate of ACPN made this known in a press conference on Monday in Abuja where she all that transpired before her disassociation with the party.
She said: “You all saw how they demonstrated their preferred brand of politics by endorsing the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in a classic somersault. Deceptive politics of transactions at its worst! God forbade that I should be in any way participate in such.
“Their actions last week did not surprise me one bit. My relationship with the ACPN became problematic once they faced the reality of my modest financial means that I had transparently disclosed to them from the beginning. Their mistake was that they harboured two wrong assumptions about me.
“First, they assumed that I was one of those who served in government and had a stash of looted public funds hidden somewhere to expend on the elections. When they realized that was not the case, they made a second wrong assumption by believing that I would be willing to go and obtain foreign cash to prosecute my campaign.”
