Oby Ezekwesili, presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), has described the All Progressives Party (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Siamese twin of failure.
Ezekwesili said this at a press conference she held in Lagos on Monday.
President Muhammadu Buhari is the candidate of the APC while Atiku Abubakar is the flagbearer of the PDP for the 2019 presidential poll.
But Ezekwesili, who is one of the five women in the race, said the PDP and APC are a single political party fielding one candidate called “Butiku”.
“The failed PDP and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the failed APC and its candidate are one and the same, Siamese twins of failure and destruction,” she said.
“For those of you considering the PDP as an alternative, I really want to ask you. What is the thing that you see about them that is any different from the APC? Really this people are the same, they are the Siamese twins of failure.
“Fellow Nigerians, here is the truth of the matter: The APC and PDP are not two parties. It is a single party fielding one candidate, and that candidate’s name is Butiku.”
