Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, the Young Progressive Party (YPP) candidate in the 2019 presidential election, resigned from the party.
Moghalu announced on Monday that he had withdrawn from the party via his Twitter handle, @MoghaluKingsley.
He said, “Our democracy will remain weak without electoral reform which involves electronic voting. Let’s resolve this before 2023.
“Please join our non-partisan movement http://tobuildanation.org Partisan politics won’t fix this problem. To this end, I’ve resigned my membership of Young Progressive Party.
“Nigeria today is approaching its moment of reckoning. We need to focus on solving our problems at their root causes. Electoral reform, voter education for an informed electorate, and constitutional restructuring are the real issues. If we can agree on these, all else can follow.
“If we fix our elections /give our democracy real meaning, our youth will have no excuses not to vote, while they spend their money to vote on @BBNaija!
“Young people should lead the charge for electoral reform. With nearly 70% of Nigeria’s population, Nigeria’s future is young.”
