Kingsley Moghalu, the presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in the 2019 presidential election has said he would reflect on it before taking a decision if President Muhammadu Buhari offers him a political appointment.
Moghalu who is a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) stated this in a chat with Arise News TV in Abuja on Friday, April 12.
The YPP presidential candidate, also during the chat, announced his withdrawal from partisan politics as "the elections are over".
He said he was going to dedicate his time to a citizens’ movement called To Build A Nation (TBAN), which seeks to help in the development of Nigeria’s electoral process.
His words: “I have 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.”
When asked if he would accept a political appointment in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, he said: “If such an appointment is offered, then you reflect on it and make a decision.”
In the 2019 presidential election, Moghalu came 14th with a total of 21,886 votes.
Ganduje offered this advice while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a private meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Friday, April 12, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said he was in the Presidential Villa to inform the vice president that all was set for his visit to Kano state on Saturday, April 13, for a marriage ceremony.
