Former Education Minister, Oby Ezekwesili has reiterated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are Siamese twins of bad governance.
Her reaction is coming from the recent announcement made by Edo Governor, Godwin Obaseki who recently joined the PDP after he was disqualified from contesting the APC Primary by the Screening Committee ahead of the Edo state governorship election.
She took to her Twitter handle and wrote: Have the silly defenders of rot now agreeing with me that the two dominant parties in our Land are nothing but #SiameseTwins of Poor Governance? Or are they still pretending there is a differentiation?”

Ezekwesili had before the 2019 election described both leading parties as Siamese twins, adding that two people were only contesting, Butiku, which means Buhari and Atiku.
