2023 Presidency: Amaechi is my project, I asked him to run – Ndume
The Chairman Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, has said the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, is the best among the aspirants seeking the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming 2023 election.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that Amaechi joined the 2023 presidential race penultimate Saturday in Port Harcourt, during the Rivers State APC thanksgiving rally.
Ndume, who stated this while speaking on Politics Today on Channels TV, described the presidential ambition of Amaechi, as his personal project.
“I am one of those who had asked Amaechi to run. I started it. That is my project. I was one of those who asked Amaechi to run, because I feel at this critical time we need a Nigerian to run, not somebody who will run based on where he comes from or region; not somebody who is not experienced enough; and not somebody who does not have the pedigree, energy and intellect to run.”
“In the APC, I feel the best candidate we can present is Amaechi. I don’t want to use the word that he is better than those who you listed. The best doesn’t mean others are not good enough. When you have very good people, then you pick the best. He is the best.”
According to Ndume, Amaechi will be a great candidate for the top job as he described him as someone who “has the pedigree, energy and intellect” needed to run Nigeria.
