Former Vice- President and presidential aspirant of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has explained the reason for his absence at Wednesday’s Special Convention of the party.
Atiku made the explanation via his Facebook page “I was scheduled to return to Nigeria yesterday from a quick business trip abroad, but could not, due to last minute logistics changes.
This is why I couldn’t attend the APC Special Convention. Apologies to leaders & supporters of our great party, who were expecting me -AA,” he posted on his facebook wall.
The Special convention was convened to approve the party’s amended constitution and adopt its revised six point manifesto. It was also an avenue for all the other presidential aspirants to address party’s delegates.
Atiku’s major opponents for the party’s ticket, former Head of state, General Muhammadu Buhari and Kano state Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso were present at the convention.
