Kingsley Moghalu, a former United Nations diplomat, has directed his supporters to vote for a presidential candidate that shares his vision for the country in the 2023 general election.
Moghalu, a former presidential aspirant of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) participated in the primary election of the party but lost to the founder of Roots Television, Dumebi Kachikwu.
On June 13, Moghalu announced his resignation from the ADC after accusing the party of corruption in the primary election that led to the emergence of Kachikwu.
In a statement on Monday, the former deputy central bank governor said he would still be involved in the country’s governance process, but through providing contributions to support nation-building.
“Notwithstanding, I have opted not to be a candidate in this electoral cycle,” he said.
“At this time, I have no plans to become a member of any other political party for the purpose of the 2023 general election.
“For those supporters and the general public who have intended to vote for me as a presidential candidate in the general elections had I emerged as one, I ask you to cast your support and ballot in the 2023 election to the candidate that comes closest to our shared vision of a Nigeria that is secured, united, and prosperous.
“However, I intend to remain keenly engaged in our country’s immediate future, including the elections, with contributions that are appropriate and can be helpful to nation-building.
“To those who held tickets but resigned from the party in solidarity with me, and who still wish to contest elections, there are alternative avenues that can be explored.
“The best chance to achieve this vision is under transformative leadership that represents a break from the old political order.
“Our children must experience a tomorrow that is much better than our today.”
