2023: Amaechi Most Qualified To Succeed PMB – Dutse Emir
By Olajide Meseko
The emir of Dutse, His Royal Highness Alhaji Nuhu Mohammadu Sanusi, has rated the minister of Transportation and presidential aspirant, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, as the best seeker of Nigeria’s number one job.
The monarch who made the remarks at his palace in Dutse, Jigawa State, yesterday, when he received Amaechi said his convictions were predicated on the minister’s performances both as a former governor and as his present role.
“He is an honest man, and whatever you say about him, you cannot change the fact that he is an honest man. He is a confident person. Wherever you see him you know he is the meaning of total confidence. These are qualities of leadership.
“These are things that we need in a leader, especially today, people who are confident, who can face realities and challenges. This is why I have endorsed him. I have high regard for him and I have confidence in his executive capacity. He is fully competent, being a speaker twice. He is most qualified,” he said.
The monarch described Amaechi as a detribalized Nigerian who has what it takes to address some of the nation’s teething problems noting, “in this country, we are faced with distress. What are these issues? Job opportunities, fighting corruption, infrastructural development and social vices such as armed robbery, banditry and so on.
“My knowledge and understanding of this gentleman, Chief Rotimi Amaechi, minister of Transportation, is that he has what it takes to fight insurgency. He did mention one, that when he was governor, there was criminality and other vices and he was able to control it.
“I am sure he would do this better now if he becomes the president. With all the resources available, he would use it to fight insurgency and other vices that are affecting us, particularly here in the North” he added.
Earlier, Amaechi said he was at the Emir’s palace to solicit the support of the Emir and people of Dutse and Jigawa State in the forth-coming APC presidential primaries adding that if given the support, he would see to the commencement of the Kano-Maradi rail project which also goes through Dutse.
