The leading female presidential candidate and the flag-bearer of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria ACPN Dr. Oby Ezekwesili have announced her withdrawal from the presidential race in order to foster unity among the other young candidates.
Oby made the decision in order to put an end to the dominance of the two major parties in the country #APCPDP.
Her decision has left the social media with various reactions from Nigerians.
Let’s check out some of these reactions here:
Good decision for Madam Oby to step down. Now after the elections ma, sit Moghalu, Fela and any other third force candidate and start planning for 2023 immediately. We need to kick this weird APC devils out of existence. PDP will need a serious opposition to sit up.

Like I've said in the past, Madam Oby might have good intentions about how Nigeria should be led, but her impassioned idealism (considering she's been in politics) worries me. There's a Messiah complex in there somewhere.

As expected from Madam Oby

Madam Oby has withdrawn and wants to support a candidate now? 😂
The game is the game but I’m here to tell you that we know your game plan 100%.
Thank God that the candidate of PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar didn’t debate with you guys who are buharists in disguise.

The truth is that Oby Ezekwesili has no electoral value, she can't even win her local government. Infact, Kingsley Moghalu, Oby, Sowore and Fela can only defeat PDP & APC in a debate not on ballot
