A former governorship candidate in Rivers State, Tonye Princewill, has said the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has the requisite qualities to become the President in 2023.
Princewill said, given Amaechi’s achievements as a former Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, and chairman, conference of Speakers in Nigeria, as well as a two-term governor, and now Minister for over six years, he stands tall among top politicians in the country to steer the nation’s ship.
He stated this in Port Harcourt, Rivers State while reacting to a statement by the Arewa youths urging the minister to contest for the presidency in 2023.
Princewill said, “they say a prophet is not always appreciated in his own home. Although it may seem like it, this is not quite the case. Our Amaechi is appreciated both at home and abroad and has what it takes to become President.”
On the call by the Arewa youths for the transportation minister to show interest in the 2023 Presidential race, Princewill said, “I support these youths who did what they could with no help from any big man.
“I watched them closely from afar. Their actions match their words and those that know the truth know we need someone who is ready to put sentiments aside and move this country forward”.
Recall that some youths from the Northern part of Nigeria under the auspices of Arewa Youths for Amaechi 2023 said that for the country to attain the development it desires, all the citizens should get involved in the process of leadership recruitment.
