Giving an assessment of his kind of presidential candidate to contest on the platform of the ruling party, an APC chieftain in Rivers State, Hon Tonye Princewill said the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is the only person that fits into that description and has what it takes to move the country to greater heights.
Speaking during an interactive meeting with select journalists in Port Harcourt on Saturday, Princewill said it would take a politician of Amaechi’s pedigree to tackle the myriads of problems confronting the nation.
Princewill noted that if performance and the knowledge of Nigeria’s politics were criteria to determine who should be the country’s President in 2023, “then the cap fits Rotimi Amaechi.”
Princewill noted that though Amaechi may be stubborn, “he is very stubborn for results. He does not take ‘no’ for an answer. He goes for results and he has always gotten results in anything he sets his eyes on.
“Amaechi took over the moribund railway industry and transformed it into something that we all can be proud of as a people. He may not remember friendship when he becomes President because he needs results that would make Nigerians happy.
