2019 Presidential Election: Wole Soyinka endorses Kingsley Moghalu

Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, has just sent PREMIUM TIMES the statement below endorsing a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Kingsley Moghalu, for the February 16 presidential election.

Mr Moghalu, a lawyer and university professor, is running on the platform of the Young Democratic Party (YDP).

Mr Soyinka, a professor, had a few days ago called on Nigerians not to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as well as his main challenger, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party.

He said both parties and their candidates have failed Nigeria and have nothing new to offer the country.

The statement he made which he used to endorse Moghalu:
Let me reiterate: “there is over-abundant, but stifled leadership material, and there can be no excuse, now that that potential of high quality is being manifested, for constricting the political space in a population that is nudging two hundred million. And that statement is of course specially addressed to those who took part in this exercise, those who deliberated opted out of it, some of whom were assessed anyway. Such potential compelled us to exercise utmost rigour in what proved to be a most daunting exercise. The final determination however is – the flag-bearer of the Young Progressive Party – KINGSLEY MOGHALU”.

The Nobel Laureate is one of Nigeria’s most popular and respected figures. How he will use his public profile to woo votes for Mr Moghalu in next week’s election however remains to been seen.
