A group, which goes with the name Amaechi Vanguard USA/Canada, loyal to the former Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, on Wednesday said the Northern regions would support Amaechi, in 2023 because he (Amaechi) supported the North to produce the presidency in 2015.
The group’s Coordinator, Daniels Chukwuma, made this statement to newsmen in Owerri, while defending the 2023 presidential ambition of Amaechi.
According to them, “Mr President and all the stakeholders in APC should elect Rt Hon Chibuike Amaechi as a unity candidate for the ruling party. His candidacy is a sure bet for the victory of the party in 2023.
“Rt Hon Chibuike Amaechi has played a major role in the growth of this country. He is loved in the north, west, east and south. We have sampled opinions and discovered that the candidacy of Rt Hon Chibuike Amaechi would win the election for APC in 2023.
“He is a detribalized Nigerian who in 2015 saw the need for power to go back to the north and he championed it without any atom of selfishness. The Northerners want to vote for him because of the uncommon courage he exhumed in 2015. The west sees him as a true Nigerian who supported them in the quest for them to produce the vice president and the speaker of the house of representatives, respectively. To the Easterners and south South people, Amaechi is their own.”
“Chibuike Amaechi has the required experiences as a two-time former governor of Rivers state, former speaker of the house of Assembly, former minister of Transportation and two times successful Director-General of a presidential campaign organization to lead this country. APC should see Amaechi as the surest way to retain power in Aso Rock in 2023,” the group said.
