Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, the immediate past Transport Minister, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, has urged his supporters in Rivers State to vote for the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Addressing his supporters on Saturday in Port Harcourt, Amaechi who lost the APC primary to Bola Tinubu urged his supporters to set aside their anger and work for the party’s victory.
The Nation quoted the former Rivers State governor as saying, “Please, in the contest for the presidency, we should know that we must go and vote for our party, no matter how angry you are, they have chosen, let’s go and vote for our party.
“For the stories you hear about the people who are gossiping how they are having meetings in France, let this be your own France. Vote for your party, don’t be afraid, just go home and do your work.
“Don’t be afraid, go home and work, that’s why I came, I came to thank you, I came to urge you to go home and work, let all of us be unit leaders, no more local government leaders, ward leaders.
“If you check in INEC, they are no longer announcing ward results, they are announcing unit results. So let’s go home and win our units and bring our units home.
“Those days of meeting, writing results have all gone, we must praise INEC, praise the National Assembly for reducing the level of rigging, where people write results and INEC will just announce, now it is almost gone.”
