Former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, has announced his withdrawal from the presidential primary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Nnamani announced his withdrawal during a meeting with journalists in Abuja on Monday.
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.”
DIPLOMATIC DIARY earlier reported that Nnamani was one of the ten presidential aspirants not cleared by the Odigie Oyegun led presidential Screening Committee of the APC.
