Former Transportation Minister Chibuike Amaechi 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, defeating his closest rival, Rotimi Amaechi, who received 316 votes at the national convention.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo finished third in the primaries with 235 votes, Senate President Ahmed Lawan received 152 votes, and Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello received 47 delegates votes.
Amaechi stated in a letter that he looks forward to working with Tinubu to ensure that the All Progressives Congress, APC, wins the presidential election in 2023.
Tinubu was congratulated by the former Rivers State Governor, who said, “Congratulations on your well-deserved victory at the APC Presidential Convention, and I extend my best wishes as you prepare for the 2023 Presidential election.”
“I am confident that your victory will re-energize the progress of our great party, the APC, bolstered by your vision of a Common Sense Revolution that led to the PDP’s defeat in the 2015 election.”
“As you embark on this historic journey, I want to assure you that I am committed to your electoral success in 2023.” I look forward to providing the necessary assistance to ensure that Nigeria develops into a prosperous nation for all Nigerians.”
