The controversy over the national convention of the All Progressives Alliance (APC) lingered yesterday as a chieftain of the party and former foreign affairs minister, Chief Tom Ikimi, explained why he boycotted the convention held in Abuja, on Friday.
Ikimi also said he would make his stand known on his speculated defection to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) this week.
Ikimi who planned to contest the national chairmanship position of the main opposition political platform was conspicuously absent at the convention held at the Eagles Square, Abuja.
Former Governor of Edo State, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, emerged the national chairman of the party at the convention.
However, Ikimi, in a telephone interview with LEADERSHIP yesterday, said his presence would have given credibility to the ‘flawed processes’ that produced Odigie-Oyegun as national chairman of APC.
