Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili, has selected a running mate ahead of the 2019 elections.
The Cable reports that Ezekwesili revealed her choice while speaking at the Kwara Hotel in Ilorin, Kwara State.
Ezekwesili selected Ganiyu Galadima, the National Chairman of the ACPN, and a presidential candidate of the party in 2015. She said:
I am very delighted that my vice-presidential candidate, my colleague, the one that will embark on this very important fight for Naija, are you ready to fight for Naija?
That I have a rugged grassroot fighter as the person who will supplement the things that I know. He will teach me how to be a consummate politician.
Alhaji Abdulganiyu Galadima is definitely known for the work he has done at the grassroot level. As someone who started a strong career in local government, he is the kind of person I need, for us to lift 80 million people out of poverty.
If we need competence, we can buy it; if we need capacity, we can buy it, but there is one thing we cannot buy, and that is character. For me, this gentleman represents that character.
