2023: Chibuike Amaechi Declares To Run For President In His Home State.
The Minister of Transportation, Rt Hon. (Sir) Rotimi Amaechi today at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium Port Harcourt, venue of the Rivers APC Thanksgiving service, declares his interest to contest for the 2023 Presidency of Nigeria under the platform of All Progressives Congress.
Amaechi said he stands before everyone today to declare his intention and submit application to serve as the next President.
“Fellow Nigerians, I stand before you today to declare my intention and submit my application to serve as your next president.
I did not come to this decision lightly, I have served our nation for the last seven years as minister of transportation.”
“Eight years before that, I served as governor of Rivers State; in the preceding eight years before that, I was Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly. Within this period, I have also served as the Director-General of President (Muhammadu) Buhari’s campaign organisation twice.”
“After more than two decades in the public arena, I had wanted to go on a holiday and spend more time with my family before charting a new course outside politics, but at 56, I am compelled by the urgency of our present challenges to place my experience and proven capacity at the service of the nation at the highest level.”
-Rotimi Amaechi, Port Harcourt.
Some Nigerians are not happy with the Minister of transportation decision to hold a thanksgiving service amidst tears/pain of victims of kidnap/murder on a train by bandits; but hundreds of thousands of Nigerians graced the occasion and show their solidarity to the Minister including Adams Oshomhole.
The All Progressive Congress, Rivers State chapter’s thanksgiving was also graced with the presence of the Hon. Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi’s wife, Dame Judith Amaechi, Chukwudi Dimkpa, Hon. Dakuku Peterside, Dr. Sylvia Cole and many other party faithfuls.
