APC Presidential aspirant and former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, has stated that his administration would be all-inclusive if he clinches the party's ticket and wins in the 2023 election.
The former Minister of Transportation made the comment on Friday during a consultative visit to Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello and delegates of the party at the Government House in Lokoja.
Amaechi showered praise on Bello for his presidential ambition but stated that he is the most qualified of all the aspirants to defeat the major opposition party, PDP.
"This is the 28th state that I have visited in the course of my consultations. I’m not one of the aspirants, I am the leading aspirant in the party.
"Again, I welcome my friend Gov. Bello who wants to run, he is a young man, he is entitled to run for the office of the President but I have more experience in governance and leadership roles than him.
"I will carry everybody along. To appoint the Minister coming from Kogi, I will come to you people and allow you to nominate whom you want.
"The reason for that is to get everybody involved so that you can approach your Minister and your Minister will know that he is responsible to you.
"Please don’t vote for anybody else, vote for me. As Speaker, I was Chairman of Speakers’ Forum, as Governor, I was the Chairman of Governors’ Forum twice, as DG of President Buhari Campaign, I managed everybody, I managed the campaign, that’s experience.
"And at the end of the day, we elected President Buhari. The first time in Nigeria that we removed an incumbent government.
"So we were determined as we are determined now", he stated.
In response to Amaechi's words, Governor Bello, who was represented by Deputy, Dr. Edward Onoja, welcomed his co-aspirant and said God would give the nation the best product.
"We believe that God will give Nigeria the best product that can secure, unite and foster peace in the country.
"We appreciate that you even remembered to come to Kogi State. To have gone round 28 states, it shows stamina, it shows strength. We wish you well."
