The leaders from the north-west geo-political zone under the umbrella of Bridge Builders Initiative For Green Nigeria (BBIGN) said the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is the most qualified and preferred candidate of the north for 2023 presidency.
In a town hall meeting held at Fulbe Villa Hotel, Gasau, Zamfara State, the representatives of the seven states which made up the north-west zone gathered to plan on how best to support Mr. Chibuike Amaechi the minister who got turbaned yesterday in Daura come 2023.
Speaking on the theme; The Roles and Achievements Of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi As A Leader and Politician, Dr. Musa Aliyu from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria said Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is a unifying factor who has a large vision to save Nigeria from her challenges.
The university Don highlighted the characters and attributes of the Minister of Transportation as he defined him to be a patriot who has Nigeria at heart.
According to him; I want to tell you today that there is no other candidate for 2023 except Chibuike Amaechi. It will be unfair if we the northerners do not support him, and Allah will not forgive us. What better gift or reward do we give to him, if not to support him for 2023 presidency.
Others who are interested in the race are anti north. It is only Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi that we can trust. He is a patriot with nationalistic, utilitarian and marxist ideologies. He is heavily interested in the development of Nigeria and welfare of the people.
We must support him.
Speaking also, Alhaji Farouk Shereef Umar, Vice President, north-west zone said he knew the Honourable Minister of Transportation when he was a speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly and Governor of Rivers State.
He said Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is a workaholic whose governance philosoph is to create opportunity for socio-economic growth and welfare of the people.
He said; as a Governor of Rivers State, I know Amaechi. He came, and immediately, the face of Rivers State changed. He prioritized on education, health care, infrastructure development, security and agriculture.
You can also see what he is doing as a Minister of Transportation. For forty years, our railway sector was moribund.
But as Amaechi came, there is speedy rehabilitation and reconstruction of rail transport system. There is improvement in maritime sector. Please we must go for Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi because he will be our messiah. Nobody should come and deceive you. It is Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi we know in the north.
The National President of Bridge Builders Initiative For Green Nigeria, Dr. Emmanuel Orgwu who was a special guest of honour thanked the north-west zone for their understanding.
Speaking during the event, Dr. Emmanuel Orgwu said; I thank you specially for your understanding on the personality of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation.
It means we do not need to campaign here. The former Governor of Rivers State has already campaigned for himself through his character.
He campaigned for himself when he took risk to make President Buhari APC candidate and then, President of Nigeria.
Some of us who are his followers suffered for joining him to support President Muhammadu Buhari, a northerner against the south-south Former President Goodluck Jonathan. We were matcheted, shot and our properties burnt.
No APC leader went through the suffering Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi passed through.
What was his offence? He supported President Buhari, a northerner.
I think the northerners owe him. I think they need to compensate him with 2023 presidency. No other reward than this. It is not easy for one to stake his life for another. He would have been killed if not God. His followers were killed. A whole family wiped away over night.
Nyesom Wike and other southern leaders were involved in the killing because Amaechi supported a northerner.
Gov. Nyesom Wike hates northerners. He is closing down sources of their livelihood in Rivers State. Call your brothers and sisters, they will tell you. He has chased them out of slaughter market in Port Harcourt.
The northerners whom Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi gave scholarship to study both home and abroad have been withdrawn. Nyesom Wike said they should go back to north.
You can see for yourself.
I believe that when Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi becomes president of Nigeria, there will be unity in this country. Tribal, religious, ethnic and political sentiments and bigotry will be eliminated. We will become Nigerians, instead of Igbos, Hausas and Yorubas.
Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is a trustworthy, honest and sincere leader and politician. He is the only Nigeria politician who says “yes, no” and it will be so.
So please give him back what he gave to you.
In his closing remark, Zamfara State Coordinator, Alhaji Usman Jamiliu thanked the participants for coming to Zamfara State for this occasion.
He said; I thank you for coming, especially the National President, Dr. Emmanuel Orgwu. When I spoke to him, I thought he will not come. But I was surprised when he told me that the insecurity in Zamfara State can never scare him from being part of activities that will promote the interest of Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. He said even though it means for him to lay down his life for Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi to be President of Nigeria, he will do it.
He is a man who loves Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi so much. He is a grassroot mobilizer who uses little to achieve much. I want to assure him that the northerners will support Chibuike Amaechi massively.
We have already concluded arrangement to visit Baba Buhari to give us Amaechi come 2023 for the interest of the north. We will not be happy with Baba Buhari if he does not give us Amaechi because if anything happens to the north, we will hold Baba responsible.
Mr. National President, go home and sleep. Tell Amaechi not to worry. We are with and for him.
The Zamfara State Coordinator also charged all seven states representatives to go home and work.
