Former presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019, Charles Udeogaranya has rescinded the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu.
Udeogeranya in a statement disclosed on Tuesday announced support for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
According to Udeogaranya, the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the ruling party is a clear sign of an Islamisation program and an autocratic government.
The former presidential aspirant depicted Obi as the most valid candidate to lead Nigeria out of the woods in 2023.
Udeogaranya said there is a momentous need for Nigerians to ignore undeveloped sentiments and vote for the right candidate because “times like these demand patriotism and self-help to make the best decisions for our country Nigeria.”
He expressed his resentment about the state of the country’s economy which has driven Nigerians to the lowest ebb of hopelessness.
Udeogaranya’s decision to endorse the former Governor of Anambra State is coming a few months after another presidential aspirant under the ruling party, S.K.C. Ogbonnia withdrew his support for Tinubu.
Ogbonnia in his announcement had publicly declared support for Obi in the 2023 presidential election.
The former presidential candidate while giving the reason for his decision had referred it to Tinubu’s weakness and “shady background.”
