In attendance were the former Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba; former Science and Technology minister, Ogbonnaya Onu, ex-Senate President, Ken Nnamani and the party’s female presidential aspirant, Mrs. Uju Ken-Ohanenye.

However, Umahi was conspicuously absent. It is however unclear why the governor was not present.

The aspirants agreed to work with any one of them picked by the ruling party to fly its presidential flag come 2023

They also reacted to the zoning formular, saying they hope the APC will do the right thing by giving the presidential ticket to the southern part of the country.

According to them, there is no division among the aspirants from the South-East.
