2023: North Central APC Forum Insists On Amaechi For President
Leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) under the aegis of North Central APC Forum have reaffirmed their commitment and support for the Presidential bid of the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, in next year’s general elections.
Speaking in Jos, the Plateau State capital, the forum’s chairman, Saleh Mandung Zazzaga, said the declaration of their support for Amaechi, after making public his ambition, was in view of his sterling qualities and capacity to take the nation to a greater height if elected president.
“Even though our initial quest was to ensure that someone from the region emerges as the next president, but now, it may be impossible, particularly from our party (APC) perspective with the emergence of the party national chairman from the region and the zoning of the presidency to the south.
“But having carefully studied the presidential aspirants from our party, we have decided to settle for Amaechi, who declared his presidential aspiration in Port Harcourt last Friday, because of his quality and strength of character.
“His achievements are laudable and generally beneficial to the people. That is why we have decided to give our support to him as the next and right person to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023,” he said.
He said Amaechi is a detribalized Nigerian and a friend of all the regions in the country, saying someone like him was needed at this time in the country’s history.
He called on political party leaders and the electorates to always support a man who will unite the country, improve security, boost the economy and revitalize all the key sectors of the nation.
