2023 presidency: Amaechi gives reasons he’s more qualified than Tinubu, Atiku, Wike, Osinbajo, others

Presidential hopeful and former Rivers State governor, Chibuike Amaechi has stated that he is more qualified to become Nigeria’s President come 2023.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, is already fielding the likes of Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, Gov Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, former Imo governor Rochas Okorocha, among others, while the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, boasts of politicians such as former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Gov Bala Mohammed, Aminu Tambuwal, Peter Obi, Anyim Pius Anyim, among others.

Amaechi, who is the current Minister for Transportation is running on the platform of the APC and stated that he has better credentials than all the politicians who have shown interest to run for the presidency.

Amaechi was speaking in Ile Ife, at the Palace of Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, when he paid a consultation visit on Monday.

Amaechi pointed out his precedence and performance in governance, highlighting that his physical and mental fitness qualified him to manage the country.

He stated, “If you look at my history, among all of us in APC, including PDP, with all due respect to them, I happen to be one with more precedence. 8 years as Speaker, 8 years as Governor, 7 years as Minister, the first Director General of a campaign to lead a fight of the removal of a government in power.

“With that experience comes the fact that the greatest and the most difficult thing for anybody in government is to lead among equals. If you don’t lead properly, they’ll remove you.

“I’ve led my equals twice, as Chairman of the Conference of Speakers and as Chairman of Governors’ Forum, which was very turbulent when there was a sharp disagreement between the governors and the then President. So, I’m experienced enough to manage the country at this difficult time.”
