Former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and presidential candidate of the Young Peoples Party in the 2019 general elections, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has joined the African Democratic Congress (ADC) to pursue his presidential ambition in 2023.
Speaking on Friday in Abuja, Moghalu said he is pleased to announce to he has joined the ADC which he feel ideologically aligned with. “I am honoured to become a card-carrying member of the party,” he said.
“In doing so, I restate my public announcement on June 1, 2021, making myself available to lead our country as a competent, 21st century president and my intention to contest in the 2023 presidential election.
“I look forward to close collaboration with the party’s chairman, Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu, Alhaji Said Abdullahi, the ADC National Secretary and the National Executive Committee, and Chair of its Board of Trustees among others,’’ he said.
He added that his desire was to take Nigeria higher and make her the envy of other nations if he becomes the president, noting that since its founding, in 2005 to date, including in the 2019 general election in which the ADC presented the late Dr Obadiah Mailafia as its presidential candidate, the party had remained consistent.
