Barely 24 hours to the commencement of the All Progressive Congress, APC convention in Abuja, former President of the Senate, Ken Nnamani, has pulled out from the ruling APC presidential race.
The former lawmaker announced his withdrawal on Monday during a meeting with journalists in Abuja on Monday.
KEMI FILANI NEWS had earlier reported that President Muhamamdu Buhari has urged the National Advisory Council of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to “actively” push for a consensus candidate ahead of the party’s presidential primary slated for Tuesday in Abuja
He said, “In the present circumstances, it does not make any sense for me to continue in the race as I have not had the opportunity to market my profile and ideas to the delegates of our party in a manner that allows for deliberation and introspection.
“Therefore, I discontinue my aspiration and wish the party a successful primary and unity of purpose so that we can win the 2023 general elections.
“I will continue to engage with the party and its leadership to make sure that the ideas and values that I cherish and propagate find a strong footing in the party administration and in public leadership after the election.”
