APC Delegate Sold Their Conscience At The Primary, Amaechi Insists
— Says They Are The Problems Of Nigeria
Hon Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, the former Minister of Transportation, has finally opened up on the last All Progressive Congress (APC) Primary Election held in Abuja ahead of 2023 Elections.
Amaechi, in his comment said APC delegates sold their conscience and abandoned “credibility of the contestants.”
According to him, such people are the real problems of Nigeria.
The former Governor of Rivers State, was quoted as making the statement in an event to mark the 60th birthday of Eugene Ogu, the General Overseer of Abundant Life Evangel Mission in Port Harcourt, the Rivers capital.
As he puts it at the event: “I don’t believe that is the solution to Nigeria’s problem — giving money. I hope you know. I give you N10 million now and when it finishes, what happens?
“The solution to Nigeria’s problem is that all of you must rise.
“God should save the ordinary Nigerian, because they are the problem. Those who voted at the APC primary, who are they? The ordinary Nigerian.
“The small money they got solved their immediate problems.
“Now ‘oh we made a mistake’; ‘we didn’t make a mistake’. We are hearing different things. Pray for the leadership of the country, but also pray that ordinary Nigerians choose the right person to govern.”
On the issue of the identity of some people dressed in Bishop’s robes, who attended the unveiling of Alhaji Kashim Shettima, as the running mate of Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Amaechi, reportedly said: “Those bishops you saw [Kashim Shettima’s unveiling ceremony], they may not be bishops, but they are Christians.”
It would be recalled that the former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, won the APC Presidential Primary held at the APC National Convention in Abuja, in June, where Amaechi came a distant second.
