After all the number of politicians in our corrosive political system that cause Nigeria’s daily deterioration and decline are not up to that number. #FixPolitics
Can we find from among our population of 190 million, a little less than 1 million people with the mix of character, competence and capacity to lead at different levels and are prepared to become our new political class? I honestly think we can. #FixPolitics
We must have important national conversations on a public campaign financing model that will remove barriers for young people and women. #FixPolitics

Unconstitutional action! You, Mr President @MBuhari are a grave danger to our fragile Democracy. What happened to the Constitutional provision 292 on Discipline of Judges? Nigerians will not allow you the license to imperil our Democracy.
WE shall #Fight4Naija.
There are only but a few Nigerians today that are not shocked and embarrassed at the case made against the CJN but come on, Mr President @MBuhari , you have GROSSLY ABUSED the principle of Separation of Powers in our Democracy by FAILING TO FOLLOW DUE PROCESS. Reverse that ABUSE.
You know what’s worse, @NGRPresident @MBuhari , it is the fact that observers of your usual nepotistic instincts could already predict where you were headed with the Judiciary. You DIVIDE your people too much by your words and actions. WE have had enough of such poor Leadership.

Three hours ago, I arrived far flung Cabo in Mexico where our Albert Einstein’s Genius100 Visionaries meeting is holding.

I was delighted to read reactions of real patriots to my announcement that I’ve decided to withdraw from the 2019 Presidential race& end my membership of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria- ACPN.

I have also seen the reaction of ACPN leadership to my decision. Fortunately, they have divinely helped me by making the Nigerian public now fully understand why I had to swiftly depart from their midst.

Following the reactions of Nigerian citizens at home and abroad to the 2019 Presidential Debate held on Saturday 19 January 2019, and after extensive consultations with leaders from various walks of life across the country over the past few days...
I have decided to step down from the presidential race and focus on helping to build a Coalition for a viable alternative to the #APCPDP in the 2019 general elections.
This coalition for a viable alternative has now more than ever before become an urgent mission for and on behalf of the citizenry.

Everything filthy that one thought about the Nigerian Politics is REAL. Yet, WE the citizens MUST fight this battle & not leave it behind for next Generation. The EVIL that has been Nigerian Politics is the foundation for our nation’s failures. I am determined to #Fight4Naija.
For the Politicians in Nigeria, there is an “Industry” called “Political Sector” and they operate in it as Political Entrepreneurs who TRADE in things like “Crowds of Poor Citizens” for political rallies, Party tickets for elective offices, Platforms migration, etc. Tragic.
Painfully, while these Political Entrepreneurs carried on with their Trade in the “Political Industry” of Nigeria, the Middle Class of our country went MISSING from Politics. People like me hated it so much until I finally heeded the word of the philosopher, Plato.#Fight4Naija.

As VP at the World Bank, one of the innovations I proudly launched with our Team was the Diaspora Program (DP). It was in strong recognition that Africa’s Human Resources abroad must not be disconnected from its Development process. #Fight4Naija
That DP went on to have so much impact within International Development and in countries of Africa - policies, knowledge, partnerships, institutions, remittances, investment etc. #Fight4Naija
I am a Champion of the imperative for every African country to LEVERAGE the capabilities and influence of its Diaspora. They are Africa’s 6th Region. #Fight4Naija

Our Manifesto is our benchmark. It’s a way for us to be accountable to you. It’s our way of translating the issues into solutions; issues you have communicated to us over time as your priority. It’s us saying, we hear you and are ready to work and to serve you. #fight4Naija
Fixing this country urgently is a NECESSITY! If we stopped to truly assess the state of our Nation, we would realize Nigeria is indeed in a state of emergency & we have no choice but to RESCUE it. Our country&people need POSITIVE & IMPACTFUL change.

The 2019 Presidential Election is going to be HISTORICAL.

This Candidate of the Citizens is running to RETIRE the old order political class and those whose mindsets they have reconfigured to call Good, Bad and Bad, Good.

#Fight4Naija @acpnhope 🇳🇬✅🚀
No fellow citizen has a right to determine who runs for an Election provided they satisfy the Constitutional provision to run for office.

I declared to run for President and boom! They rushed out from the woodwork to tell me “Step down for...

Worse was for whom they do it.
Folks, this Candidate is all geared to ROUNDLY DEFEAT your Candidates.

It does not matter the war chest your Single Entity of Old Order Political Class possess.

The 2019 Elections will MARK A TURNING in this country🇳🇬✅

We have a MESSAGE for the Citizens.

Find yours also.

Such nerve for anyone of you supporting the “successful businessman” (whose US enterprise is receiving attention at the Justice Department of that country) to pretend you are ‘patriots’ who want to ‘save’ Nigeria.
You&your other friends of the #ButikuFamily sure make us 😂 😂.
Let’s keep going. Keep marching forward.

I am not contesting to “make a statement”.

I am contesting to retire the #ButikuFamily and the dangerous #Mindset they represent for our country.

It is time for a #NewNigeria of :

😂😂😂 Haa, our ‘friends’ are crying me a river tonight. Ndoonu.

For as long as you feel ENTITLED to disturb my TL with those your funny tweets, you better be ready to receive a #Butiku punch from me also.

Abi no be so? 💪🏿🇳🇬✅🚀

Meet the @ACPNHOPE Vice Presidential Candidate: Alhaji Ganiyu Galadima. A former presidential candidate, he is a community builder & grassroots organiser par excellence, with proven integrity and character over his years in Nigerian politics. #Fight4Naija…
“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.” #Fight4Naija
“Alhaji Abdulganiyu Galadima is definitely known for the work he has done at the grassroots 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.” #Fight4Naija

Kaduna was revelatory of the fact that Citizens are TIRED of Governance Failure.
In four sets of meetings with diverse segments of society, the recurrent theme was, “ It is time to break away from a Failed Order”.
Our people are READY🇳🇬✅🚀!

Citizens shall determine the 2019 elections by themselves.
The era of “politricians” and their coterie of praise singers telling citizens to choose the “lesser of two evils” is FINALLY NOW OVER.
They cannot see it coming, but that’s fine. Join us & #Fight4Naija until WE win👍🏾
As WE take #Fight4Naija across the country, one imagines that the determination of Citizens to birth the kind of Politics and Politicians who shall provide Purposeful Governance shall rise to a crescendo. My heart leaps for joy for the Liberty that will follow. #AmazingGrace🌹🙏🏾

I was uplifted by the energy & optimism of the women - some of them widows - that I met with in Kaduna today. These my Sisters empowered me with their JOY @ the fact that I am running. They prayed🙏🏾They cheered👏🏿. #Fight4Naija #SisterSister ❤️💪🏿
We discussed our @ACPNHOPE vision for vastly raising their individual participation and productivity, as major contributors to the Economy. I was able to share with them our plans to make Education the New Oil,
Human Capital the New Economy. #Fight4Naija
We also discussed the disturbing joblessness of our young ones. They want Businesses to come now! O that our Leaders would all know that to be elected to serve our people is on its own an immeasurable honor! #Fight4Naija

A glorious day with our family in Abagana, Anambra, yesterday - as we received the blessings of my Ugbo-Ezekwesili Clan, our Royal Father - Igwe Abagana & also from Igwe Nimo to formally begin this race to rescue Nigeria.
Their enthusiasm filled my heart with JOY! #Fight4Naija
Our visit to receive the Blessing of our Royal Fathers before we commence the journey of our #Fight4Naija #Hope2019 Campaign in earnest!
Here we are with my Igwe, His Majesty Obi, Sir P.M Okeke, Igwe Abagana, Anambra state.
His empowering words were incredibly ENERGIZING! 💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿
We also visited Nimo - our sister town & my husband’s maternal town - to see His Royal Majesty, Igwe Maximus Ike Oliobi of Nimo, Anambra State. He spoke of his personal experience on how my Madam Due Process work was the highpoint of Public Contracting. Amazing Igwe! #Fight4Naija

President Muhammadu Buhari has now shown neither the capacity nor the aptitude for the highest office in the land.

Do you remember? 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, former vice president Atiku Abubakar because they think Atiku is the only person that can defeat Buhari in 2019.
