Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajuiba Minister of State for Education becomes the first person to pick the APC Expression of Interest

A group, Project Nigeria, has reportedly procured the expression of Interest and nomination forms for the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajuiba, to contest for the presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The group, according to Abubakar Usman, special assistant on new media to the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, paid and picked the form on behalf of the minister at the APC Secretariat on Wednesday.

Mr Usman disclosed this in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle; @MrAbusidiq.

The Minister of State for Education, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajuiba becomes the first person to pick the APC Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for the APC Presidential Primary as a group of Nigerians raised over N100m from where they purchased the forms for him,” Mr Usman tweeted.

Mr Nwajuiba is yet to officially declare to contest for the position.

Efforts by PREMIUM TIMES to speak with the minister were unsuccessful as he did not pick the call placed to his phone nor reply to a message sent to him.

A copy of the receipt has been circulating on social media platforms.

It is not uncommon to see support groups operating by proxy on behalf of politicians.

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige, whose ministry is statutorily charged to manage labour relations, has also declared interest to jostle for the APC ticket.

Alao Abiodun tweeted “Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, Chris Ngige are both contesting for 2023 Presidency.

They are not intentional with their approach(es) to end the lingering ASUU, NASU, SSANU strike but it seems they are rather interested in politicking. Very pathetic. #ASUUstrike.”

This development is coming less than 24hours that Orji Uzor Kalu pulled out of the race because of the failure of the ruling party to zone the ticket to the South-east where he hails from.
