The Project Nigeria Group, PNG, has described Minister of State, Education, Hon Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, as the best among several aspirants in the All Progressives Congress, APC vying for the presidency in 2023.

Addressing a world press conference in Abuja, Friday,  the National Co-ordinator and National Secretary of PNG, Prof Armayau Hamisu Bichi and Chinedu Comrade Ogubuike, KSM, said “Nwajiuba is the man the job needs and the man that needs the job”

He’s one of the best from the rest of aspirants for Nigeria’s 2023 Presidency.

“At 54, his resume speaks volumes of achievements with zero corruption. His expanse of political coverage has no leanings on ethnic bigotry. He’s an Igbo in acts and pacts but with a vision to use his Igboness to cohere the nation in greater strides”

The group also described Nwajiuba as “ a national team player in politics and has the needed wide connections to build a strong nation. He is a developmental politician who stands out amongst the best and the rest in the quest for the Presidency”

It further noted that the Minister has built strong alliances that have aided national development.

“In the east, he is the star, in the West he is the starlight and in the north, he is the galaxy.

“He is the force for the breaking off of hatred and ethnicism and building up of strong alliances for our national development. The real question now is: 

“What are we looking for in the actualization of a Nigerian President of Southeast Extraction or how do we actualise the dream of a Nigerian President of Southeast Extraction? There’s no other voice so loud and clear and no other selfless leader so committed to the growth of our nation like Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba. The better choice for APC is Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba” the PNG declared.

Unveiling Nwajiuba’s qualifications, the PNG said the Minister “is well educated in law, a field he professionally holds sway with much commitments.

“He is an erudite scholar and researcher in academics. His field is Civil Law, an area he read to the doctorate. He attended Imo State University, University of Lagos and University of Jos where he garnered his LL.B, LL.M and LL.D. He practices law in politics and policy formulation. He has been a voice for the advocacy of good governance and strict adherence to the nation’s constitutional development and rights”

The PNG said it is presenting to Nigerians “ a man of vision and an astute fellow of full of developmental ideas and cohesive reasoning

“We are presenting to our country, Nigeria a man who is a bridge builder between the young and the old, the north and the south and the various ethnic and religious diversities.

“He  has the energy and strength to occupy Nigerian Presidency and meet up the demands of such office at a time like this. He has the needed character, capacity, candour,competence and capability for the exalted office. 

“We are talking about a Nigerian President of Southeast extraction who must be willing to serve and sieve the odds in order to give this country the best of governance. Yes, a man with zero corruption and astute indices as his benchmark ideals. We see all these in Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba.

The group further stated that Nwajiuba, has been a consistent politician who has maintained a political ideology.

 They stated “He has maintained consistency in his political ideologies. As a youth,he understands the essence of building a perfect political fence which must direct his vision correctly. He truly supported President Muhammadu Buhari in 2003 when he contested the Presidency under ANPP and that same year he emerged as Imo State Governorship Candidate of ANPP. 

“After that political trudging with all it’s attendant vehemence, Nwajiuba waited to know his next good political move. It was an ellipsis time to get more academic experience for his future political engagements. He later proceeded to join force with his respected political father, President Muhammadu Buhari,in 2010 to form another national political party known as Congress for Progressive Change (CPC),which he later became Imo State Governorship Candidate of the party in the year 2011. With all that played out then, he wasn’t deterred but continued in the belief that he must give out his best when the actual time comes.

“He has also been in the mainstream push for a Nigeria that must thrive on rule of law in a multiethnic and multi-religious setting. Thus, in 2014, he represented his party, CPC, in the Constitution Drafting and Merger Committee of the All Progressive Congress, APC. His contributions helped in greater ways in the proper development of the merger apparatus that culminated in the formation of the APC today.

“He has served and still serving this country with all his might and has brought to bare his experiential candours in making policy acts. In 2017, he became the first person from the Igbo stock,Southeast of Nigeria,to be appointed by the President of Nigeria as the Executive Chairman of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND); an office he held and worked to turnaround the state of our tertiary institutions to become more standardized in research and physical development. 

“In 2019,he had to resign as the Executive Chairman of TETFUND to run for the House of Representatives,which he won. Considering his deep desire to continue his unwavering service to this country, he spent only two months in the House of Representatives because he was appointed again by President Muhamadu Buhari as the Honourable Minister of State for Education, a position he currently holds in the country” the PNG stated.
