Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili, has stated that Nigerians will not choose between incompetence and corruption in next year’s general elections.

Describing President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration as incompetent and sluggish, she said former Vice President Abubakar Atiku was corrupt.

Ezekwesili, who spoke at a media briefing in Lagos yesterday cautioned that if Nigerians repeat the mistake of 2015 by choosing a lesser evil next year, the country would suffer its consequences.

She also said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s celebration of bailouts, as an achievement of the present administration is a colossal shame, adding that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) are like Siamese twins of failure and destruction.

“In 2015, the chant all across the country was ‘Anyone But Jonathan.’ Sadly, that is how we ended up with this reprobate government. This time it is: ‘Anyone But Buhari.’

“And by that they mean that we should reinstate the failed PDP and its candidate, because they think he is the only person that can defeat Buhari in 2019 and in 2023 when Atiku and PDP fail again, because a bad tree cannot bear good fruits.”
