The Candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) in the just concluded presidential election, Kingsley Moghalu has announced his withdrawal from “partisan politics.” The former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank made this known during a chat with newsmen on Friday in Abuja.
YPP candidate , Victor Moghalu, came 14th position with 21,886 votes in the presidential poll which he blamed on the youths of the nation.
“The biggest disappointment was with the youths. The youth vote was absent. They make a lot of noise, they rant and rail but you will not see them on the voting day. And when they vote, they don’t vote in line with their rhetoric,” Mr Moghalu said.
He said he was now going to dedicate his time to a citizens’ movement called Build A Nation (TBAN) which he said will seek to help in the development of Nigeria’s electoral process.
If the Buhari-led administration offers him a political appointment ?
He said “If such an appointment is offered, then you reflect on it and make a decision.”
When asked if the elections were better than when compared to 2015, Moghalu noted that chaos marred some polling centers coupled with an alleged organisational efficiency and effectiveness shortly before the commencement of voting.
“The organisational efficiency and effectiveness of the election was generally weak. We saw it. First, it was postponed at the last minute and in many parts of the country, there was chaos at the polling booths especially in rural areas.”
