The presidential candidate of the National Interest Party, Eunice Atuejide has withdrawn from the 2019 presidential race and has declared her support for Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
In a statement published on her Instagram page, Eunice explained that her withdrawal from the race was because of the postponement of the February 16 elections, which also marked the deadline for her presidential ambition.
According to her, the race is between the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar and she has decided to vote for Atiku after proper investigations.
“I cannot defend the PDP for giving us bad leadership from 1999 to 2015, yet I cannot help but blame the APC for doing a much worse job from 2015 to 2019”, her statement read.

This is the full text of my endorsement statement in favour of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar @aatiku and Mr. Peter Obi @peterobiofficial of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) @officialpdpnigeria. All of us, particularly those of us we love to call the alternative candidates know that it is STRICTLY between #Atiku and #Buhari come Saturday 23rd February 2019. I specifically call on Kingsley Moghalu @moghalukingsley, Fela Durotoye @feladurotoye and Omoyele Sowore @yelesho – you all know you CANNOT win the Saturday elections so what's your reason for REFUSING to fight for this country? You all refused to come together to help form a united front to go up against #APC and #PDP when the opportunity to do so was still open. Now that that window of opportunity has closed, we have only #Buhari and #Atiku to choose from. If you guys are smart, you know by now that NONE of you could win the Presidential election scheduled for 23rd February 2019. So, why are you all still carrying on with the selfish nonsense you have been doing 🤨! When exactly do you plan to start DOING things to show Nigerians that you can put yourselves LAST?! Please drop it already and pick a side. Pick Atiku if you really care about this country, and pick Buhari if it's only about yourselves. Whatever side you pick, posterity will judge you. And even if you refuse to pick a side, posterity will still judge you. I and mine have picked #Atiku! I rest my case. #BuhariMustGo #ANigeria4All
