Moghalu resigns from ADC after failing to secure presidential ticket

After falling to secure the African Democratic Congress (ADC) presidential ticket, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, on Monday disclosed that he is out of the 2023 electoral cycle and will not run on any other political platform.

It will be recalled that Moghalu, a former was the presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in the 2019 elections but moved to the ADC before 2023 party primaries to pursue his presidential aspiration.

After losing the ADC primaries to Dumebi Kachikwu, on June 8 in Abeokuta, Ogun, he resigned from the party.

In a statement on Monday, he revealed that many invitations had been extended to him by some political parties to still be presented as a presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections on their party platforms.

“Notwithstanding, I have opted not to be a candidate in this electoral cycle.

He said, “At this time, I have no plans to become a member of any other political party for the purpose of the 2023 general elections.

“However, I intend to remain keenly engaged in our country’s immediate future, including the elections, with contributions that are appropriate and can be helpful to nation-building.”

According to him,  his campaign was always based on a vision for Nigeria as written in his manifesto book, Build, Innovate and Grow (BIG), and a desire to serve, “not on any inordinate personal ambition.”
