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 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.
May God order our footsteps towards a better life for all Nigerians.
God bless you.
