The Minister of Transportation and presidential aspirant under the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rotimi Amaechi, says there is a need to focus on electing a young, vibrant and experienced person like him as the next president of Nigeria in 2023.
Amachi made this declaration while speaking in Lagos State during his consultation visit to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the State House in Marina.
Amaechi and his entourage were also at the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu where the monarch prayed for him and the nation.
But Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State told Transportation Minister and 2023 presidential aspirant on the platform of the APC, Rotimi Amaechi, that Bola Tinubu is the rallying point of Lagos delegates.
He spoke when Amaechi paid a consultative visit to the leadership of APC in Lagos State.
At the governor’s office in Marina, Sanwo-Olu told the minister that, in spite of his respect and high regard for the National Leader of the APC, Tinubu, it is evident that Amaechi is also eminently qualified for the Presidency.
He said: “As a person, I have regard and respect for our leader, Tinubu. I have been a direct beneficiary of his leadership. I have been part of his cabinet, and personally I continue to toe that line of leadership Tinubu stands for. But because we are not God, God himself will help the cause of this country.
“I want to say to you that you are eminently qualified and there is no doubt about that. You are very experienced in this journey, but for a whole lot of us in Lagos State, Tinubu continues to be our rallying point. I certainly know what your pedigree is and what you have done. I will be unfair if I don’t say that. I wish you all the very best,” Sanwo-Olu said.
