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.

Some people are not just going anywhere and they know this. Nice one Madam Oby.Twitter Ads info and privacy
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 leadershipTwitter Ads info and privacy
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)…
Breaking news: Madam Oby Ezekwesili withdraws from the presidential race to focus forming a coalition for a viable alternative
Everything no be by twitter followers. Good she has tested her strength & popularity on the street to know that she’s overrating herself.
Madam Oby has withdrawn and wants to support a candidate now?
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.
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.
