One of the main candidates in Nigeria’s presidential election to be held next month has stepped down. This is because she wants to form a broader coalition to defeat the two main parties.

Oby Ezekwesili is well known for leading the #BringBackOurGirls campaign to help free the 276 girls kidnapped from Chibok, northern Nigeria, in 2014. She co-founded Transparency International and has served as the Education Minister and Vice-President of the World Bank.

But in a surprise statement this morning, she said she was committed to building a coalition that would offer Nigerians a viable alternative to the two major parties – the governing All Progressive’s Congress (APC) and the main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

In a series of tweets following the announcement, she admitted that her party, the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, disagreed with her choice.
