‘She has just destroyed the hopes of Nigeria having a female president’ – Nigerians react to Oby Ezekwesili’s decision to step down

In the early hours of today, Thursday, January 23rd, 2019, female presidential aspirant, Oby Ezekwesili announced her withdrawal from 2019 presidential race saying she has opted to help build a coalition to defeat the All Progressives Congress and the People’s Democratic Party in the February 16, 2019 election.

As expected, her decision is generating mixed reactions among Nigerians and while many applaud her decision others feel she has just dashed the hopes of Nigeria having a female president at this time.

Do referee to anoint “3rd Force” candidate, abandon the anointed.
Enter the race less than 6 months to the election.
Exit the race less than 1 month to the election.

So Madam Oby is graduating from one self deceit and pipe dream to another, what is forming a coalition that’ll defeat the APC and PDP in next month’s election?

I personally think the ability to analyze situations and make the right decisions is a very key part of leadership

In my heart I knew this was likely going to be Madam Oby’s move all along. It is a very smart and practical move.

1. Draw lots of attention to her beliefs for the country.
2. Step aside (deep down we know she is unlikely to win as it is)…

As a Nigerian who believes that more participation of women in politics will help to strengthen our democracy, the news of Madam Oby withdrawing from the Presidential race is not something to rejoice over.

Let me get this; first she was part of a “veritable coalition” to counter #APCPDP through PACT, then a “primary” she oversaw ended in chaos, then she rose to save the day by declaring she wanted to run & now she’s stepping down to “focus on helping to build a veritable coalition”

You see that confused madam Oby has pulled out of the Presidential race. This should not be a surprise, but a slap on those that actually believed in her at first.

Madam Oby has withdrawn and wants to support a candidate now? 😂

Dear @obyezeks,
The game is the game but I’m here to tell you that we know your game plan 100%.

Thank God that the candidate of PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar didn’t debate with you guys who are buharists in disguise.

Good decision for Madam Oby to step down. Now after the elections ma, sit Moghalu, Fela and any other third force candidate and start planning for 2023 immediately. We need to kick this weird APC devils out of existence. PDP will need a serious opposition to sit up.

Wonder the rhetoric Aisha Yesufu is going to spin now that Madam Oby has dropped out of the race. Whom will she tell the man her husband loaned money to support now.

So sad to see Madam Oby withdraw from the race but I think it’s a smart move, she has no chance at all but this coalition she speaks of should have been done a long time ago.
