2019: Presidential hopeful cries foul as ticket reserved for prisoner
Mr Iheanacho Ezeakor, the young man who won the presidential primaries of the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) has cried over what he calls “crass impunity” as the National chairman of the party, Malam Shittu Mohammed, has inserted his name as the flag bearer while offering him the vice presidential slot.
In a press statement, Mr Ezeakor questioned how the chairman would double as a presidential candidate in our type of presidential democracy, saying it was against “the rules”.
Mr Ezeakor, who believes he stands a better chance to compete against President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Peoples Congress (APC) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), promised to make available electricity 24/7, good roads, potable water and world class health facilities.
