Ex-COAS General Buratai, Ex-IGP Abba Join Amaechi’s Presidential Campaign

The campaign of presidential aspirant, Rotimi Amaechi was boosted Wednesday with the presence of former Chief of Army Staff and Nigerian Ambassador to Benin Republic, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, and a former Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba.

They were among the people who accompanied Amaechi to Dutse, Jigawa.

His host Gov. Muhammad Badaru of Jigawa, also a presidential aspirant, said he will not contest against Amaechi in the 2023 election.

Badaru stated this when Amaechi, the former Minister of Transport, met with delegates from the state.

“There will be no contest between me and Amaechi. It is either I run or he runs, but for sure, I cannot run against him,” Badaru said.

Earlier, the former minister appealed to the APC delegates to vote for him because he is competent and a detribalised Nigerian.

Amaechi added that of all the aspirants seeking the presidential seat, he is the person with both the legislative and executive experiences, saying they have made him to understand Nigeria better.

“Judge me by past records, not what people think and say I am. I have to be the president of Nigeria because of my trajectory.”

“It would not be fair for the north to abandon the south-south in its hours of need because of the long standing political relationship between the two regions,” Amaechi said.
