2023: Popular Minister Speaks On Alleged Presidential Ambition




Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has refuted speculations about his contesting for president in 2023.

Amaechi stated this while asking that he should not be distracted about the politics of 2023, adding that he is not a politician.

He stated this while responding to questions about his alleged interest in succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 during an interview.

The Transportation Minister said that he is preoccupied with delivering on the various railway projects across the country, adding that he could not combine the ministerial duties with politics.

Amaechi noted that even if he has a 2023 ambition, he wouldn’t have started two years to the election because he is not a rich man. He explained that his recent visit to Taraba State was strictly for a wedding ceremony, contrary to insinuations in some quarters that it was a campaign visit.

His words: “I went to Taraba for a wedding. At the end of the wedding, if you see plenty news that was out of Taraba. Mischievously, it was reported that I went to campaign, campaign to do what?

“The election is about two years plus away, am I that rich even if I have ambition? I have told you, can you people allow me do my work? “I am the Minister for Transport and that is my responsibility, nobody should keep talking to me about politics, that was why I said on several occasions that I am not a politician. Please allow me do my work.”
