Former Senate President and All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant, Senator Ken Nnamani, has withdrawn from the presidential race.
Senator Nnamani’s announced his withdrawal from the presidential race during a press conference he addressed in Abuja on Monday.
The former Senate President, who is from South-East, also expressed his support for southern presidency in 2023.
“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 allow for deliberation and introspection. Therefore, I discontinue my aspiration and wish the party 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 strong footing in the party administration and in public leadership after the election.
“No matter the outcome of the primary, I pray that our party does justice to the southeast that ought to present the next presidential candidate of our party. I would be glad if any of my colleagues from the southeast vying for the office wins the primary. Any of them can provide strong leadership to the country,” he said.
