It is not yet very clear what to make of Rotimi Amechi’s position in the 2023 presidential race, as the Minister of Transportation and former governor of Rivers state is yet to publicly declare his intention.
However, on Friday, Emeka Chukwu, the national coordinator of Amechi’s campaign team, said on Arise News that, the Minister is planning to publicly declare his interest in the 2023 presidential race, and that his campaign team’s move is not just another proxy game.
Chukwu said, “Amechi is interested in running, he is not forced to run, he will declare his interest in good time.”
Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi was a two time governor of the oil-rich Rivers State from 2007 – 2015; after being a Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly from 1999 – 2007.
The 56 years old Amechi is currently serving as the Minister of Transportation in the President Muhammadu Buhari led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
