The presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili has picked the chairman of the party, Ganiyu Galadima, who she described as a ‘gentleman of character’, as her running mate for the 2019 presidential election.
Ezekwesili while speaking on why she chose Galadima, 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.”
