Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Minister of State for Education, has come under fire for his presidential ambitions.
Nwajiuba accepted the All Progressive Congress (APC) expression of interest form to become President of the country in 2023 on Wednesday.
Nwajiuba, who accepted the nomination form at Project Nigeria Group (PNG) reception in Abuja on Wednesday, urged the party to put their trust in him as their new symbol of unity, growth, and regeneration.
Deji Adeyanju, convener of Concerned Nigerians, reacted by describing the Minister as a clown who deceived Nigerians.
“The Minister of Education just bought a N100m APC presidential nomination form and ASUU is still on strike.
“Today is day 72 since students have been home. These are the clowns that deceived Nigerians with CHANGE in 2015,” he wrote on Twitter.
