The Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, on Wedesday in Ilorin announced the National Chairman of the party; Alhaji Ganiyu Galadima, as her running mate.
Galadima in 2015 the presidential flagbearer of the party and came fourth with 40,311 votes.
Ezekwesili who flagged off her campaign in Kwara State inside the Banquet Hall of Kwara Hotel said Galadima would join her to lead 18 million Nigerians out of quagmire.
She urged Nigerians to disregard rhetorics and deceit being dished out by both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) on daily basis.
The two parties, she said, were responsible for the poor economic and political situation the finds itself.
For instance, Dr. Ezekwesili said the current Gross Domestic Products (GDP) in Nigeria is sadly less than 2000 dollars pairing with Singapore, a country that was far behind Nigeria some years back.
She said an ACPN government under her would strive to reverse the trend after the 2019 general election.
