Chibuike Amaechi, the former Minister of Transportation, has spoken out for the first time since his defeat in the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primaries.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC’s national leader and former Lagos State governor, received 1,271 votes in the national convention, defeating his closest rival, Rotimi Amaechi, who received 316 votes.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo came in third place with 235 votes, Senate President Ahmed Lawan received 152 votes, and Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello received 47 votes.
In a letter signed by him, Amaechi stated that he is looking forward to working with Tinubu to ensure that the All Progressives Congress, or APC, wins the presidential election in 2023.
“Congratulations on your well-deserved victory at the APC Presidential Convention,” the former Rivers State Governor said, “and I entered my best wishes as you prepare for the 2023 Presidential election.” I am convinced that your victory will re-energize the advancement of our great party, the APC, and will be bolstered by your vision of a Common Sense Revolution, which helped the PDP lose the 2015 election.
“As you embark on this historic adventure, please know that I am fully committed to your election victory in 2023.” I am eager to provide the necessary assistance to ensure that Nigeria develops into a thriving nation for all Nigerians.”
