Kingsley Moghalu, presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) says he has quits active politics.
Moghalu disclosed this in a conversation with Arise TV news in Abuja.
Moghalu and his YPP polled 21,886 votes in the last presidential election to come 14th according to result released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) said he was now going to dedicate his time to a citizens’ movement called Build A Nation (TBAN) which seeks to help in the development of Nigeria’s electoral process.
I’ve decided to pretty much withdraw from partisan engagement at this time, the elections are over.
“We’re engaging on a non-partisan basis to a platform called To Build A Nation (TBAN), a citizens’ movement that will campaign for electoral reform and engage in voter education.
“Those are the two things this democracy needs if it is to survive,” Moghalu said.
Asked if he would accept a political appointment if such should come from President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, he said “If such an appointment is offered, then you reflect on it and make a decision.”
