Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba Snubs APC Convention

The ruling party is currently holding its presidential primary election for the 2023 general election at Eagle Square in Abuja.

During the exercise on Tuesday night, the master of ceremony, Abike Dabiri-Erewa repeatedly called Nwajiuba’s name but he was not present.

In a statement signed by his brother, Chinedum Nwajiuba, the aspirant said the party’s refusal to zone the position to the South-east led to his action.

Nwajiuba, who hails from Imo State in the South-east geo-political zone, said he doesn’t want to be part of the APC convention which he described as the “Dollar and Naira bazaar.”

The statement read, “Many friends are calling to find out why my brother, Dr. Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba did not come out to address the APC convention.

“Simple: The understanding from the highest levels prior to his involvement, and considering his role in the founding of the APC, was that of consensus as was with the National Chairmanship a few months ago.

“With that understanding, the Presidential ticket was to come to the South, and the South-East. This has been the hope till the end of the negotiations.

“He, not wanting to be part of the Dollar and Naira bazaar, is convinced that what Nigeria needs now is no more of the same thing that has kept Nigeria at the low level it has been. Our challenges as a country cannot be addressed at the same energy level by which they were created.”

Meanwhile, Ogbonnaya Onu in his speech at the convention told the APC delegates that the next president of Nigeria should come from the South-East.
