One of the presidential aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC and former Minister of State for Education, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba whom many expected to come out to address the delegates at the special convention, but did not come out, has said cited noncompliance on Consensus candidacy for the Igbo Presidency and the issue of Delegates buying by other aspirants as major reasons he stayed away from APC Convention.
This was made known by one Professor Chinedum Nwajiuba, who had come out to speak on his behalf, giving his reasons for not being there at the convention centre.
According to him, “many friends are calling to find out why my brother, Dr. Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba did not come out to address the APC convention and the answer is simple,
“The understanding from the highest levels before 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 southeast.
“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.” He said.
