Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi says he needs money

Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has denied reports that he is contesting for the 2023 presidential election. Amaechi made the confirmation to AriseTV on Saturday. Recall that some groups had called on the APC chieftain to run for presidency in 2023.

Also, Governor Nasir El-Rufai had also said he would only run for the 2023 presidency either as a presidential aspirant or a running mate to the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi if President Muhammadu Buhari insists.

Reacting, Amaechi said “The people that want me to run for the presidency in 2023 should just give me the money. I need money to survive.

Meanwhile, Amaechi’s presidential campaign posters and that of the Central Bank Governor, Dr. Godwin Emefiele flooded the Eagle Square, the venue of the ongoing National Convention of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Abuja.

Other aspirants’ posters displayed at the convention venue are that of former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the current Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi. Tinubu and Umahi have both declared their intentions to run for presidency in 2023.
