BREAKING: APC’s only female presidential aspirant Ohanenye steps down, support Tinubu


The All Progressives Congress’ first female presidential aspirant, Uju Ohanenye, has stepped down for the National Leader of APC, Bola Tinubu.

She announced this at the party’s convention on Tuesday.

She said, “Nigeria needs a leader and I decided to be the mother of the country. Nigeria is lacking women’s expertise.

“I thank you so much, but I have found out that we need more time for that to happen. I am pleading with delegates to know that their votes are life savers. Think of your children and mothers before you vote.

“Vote for someone that will ensure the brighter future of our children. I feel I should step aside for that life saver and the best candidate who is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. I beg my supporters to vote for Tinubu.”

Selected members of APC have gathered to vote on Tuesday in key primaries to choose a candidate for next year’s election to replace the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

More than 2,300 APC delegates will select a candidate to face 75-year-old Atiku Abubakar of the opposition People’s Democratic Party among others in the February 25 presidential ballot.
