A former minister for Education, Oby Ezekwesili has warned that she would campaign against the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress and the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party, in 2019 if young minds were not brought in.
The minister made this known through series of tweets on Thursday.
She said that her political agenda in 2019 is to stop the two political parties in Nigeria from winning both state and federal elections.
The co-founder of the #BringBackOurGirls movement said she would “disrupt and end the political and governance stagnation and retrogression that our cyclical low equilibrium political Russian roulette has cost our country and people.
“Enough is enough,” she said
“My political agenda is simple. I shall actively campaign against APC and PDP in the 2019 elections except in rare cases where they field new minds with a strong record of public interest.
“I shall actively campaign for the best candidates of all other parties in the elections.
“My individual effort to campaign against APC and PDP in the 2019 elections may not amount to much, but it is at least a definite expression of my personal conviction.
“My conviction is that it is time to end the tyranny of rulership of a wicked minority political elite class,” she wrote.
The historic defeat of the ruling PDP in the 2015 elections ended the party’s 16 years of political dominance and gave the people hope of a new beginning.
The former minister described both parties as “twin brothers”
“This for me is the #YearOfTheOfficeOfTheCitizen when all citizens lift their red card.
“Whether many other citizens feel the way one feels about our political status quo does not matter. Standing up for what I believe is what one was raised to epitomize.
“It is sickening to watch the repetition of a similar pattern of bad behavior by our political class,” she said.
