A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has declared that the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, was misunderstood over his comment on the 2023 Presidency.
Eze, in a statement made available to LEADERSHIP in Port Harcourt yesterday, insisted that there was no basis for the attack, as what the minister did was merely stating the obvious, the APC chieftian described the attack as myopic and self-serving.
The statement reads in part: “For refusing to support the APC, they cannot come to the table to demand the presidency slot.
“For people like us in the APC, if the Igbo had come and voted Buhari, they would boldly tell Mr President and the National Chairman of the party that presidency should go the Southeast, since the South-South, South-West and North-West have produced president.
“What argument would the Southeast come up with now to convince anybody that they deserve the slot for 2023 president.”
