BREAKING: EXCLUSIVE!!! Nationwide Jubilation As Atiku ‘Anoints’ Ezekwesili As 2019 Presidential Running Mate
Reports made available to Post-Nigeria, revealed that former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, may pick the former Minister of Education and Co-Founder of BringBackOurGirls Campaign, Dr Obiageli Ezekwesili, as running mate, ahead of the 2019 Presidential polls.
This came contrary to report which has been flying around the social media, that Atiku had settled for former Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
Recall, that the former Minister of Finance, had denied having anything to do with a poster circulating on the internet, in which she was paired with Atiku, as candidate for 2019 Presidential election. The former Minister completely disowned the poster, in a statement signed by Paul Nwabuikwu, her Media Consultant.
On the other hand, sources who confided in Post-Nigeria, averred that the decision by Atiku to choose Ezekwesili as his running mate, was based on the fact that the Co-Founder of BringBackOurGirls Campaign, is a popular figure in the North, because of her doggedness in the fight for the release of the abducted Chibok Girls, and her vast experience in the economy.
According to her Wikipedia, she is a Nigerian Chartered Accountant, she was a Co-Founder of Transparency International, serving as one of the pioneer Directors of the global anti-corruption body, based in Berlin, Germany.
She served as a Federal Minister of Solid Minerals, and then as Federal Minister of Education, during the second-term Presidency of Olusegun Obasanjo.
Since then, she served as the Vice President of the World Bank’s Africa division, from May 2007 to May 2012.
Ezekwesili holds a Master’s Degree in International Law and Diplomacy, from the University of Lagos, as well as a Master of Public Administration Degree, from the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.
