Rotimi Amaechi Joins 2023 Presidential Race



Rt Honourable Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, has joined the 2023 presidential race. Amaechi, who has severally denied being interested in the race, declared his interest on Saturday, April 9, at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium Port Harcourt, venue of the Rivers APC Thanksgiving service.
The minister who said he would be running under the platform of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), confirmed this development via a post on his official Facebook page in the early hours of the day.

His statement reads, “I stand before you today to declare my intention and submit my application to serve as your next President.”

Amaechi has been in government since 1999, serving two terms as Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly (1999-2007), and two terms as Governor of Rivers (2007-2015). He is one of the few ministers President Muhammadu Buhari reappointed in 2019.
