As the fireworks for Nigeria’s 2023 presidency begin, a political support group, entitled Rotimi Amaechi Transformation Agenda of Nigeria, RATAN, has joined the call for Rotimi Amaechi to run for the Office of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Addressing a forum in Abuja today, Hon. Timothy Oshiotse, Director General of RATAN, canvassed that Nigeria’s Minister for Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, fits the essential bill for Nigeria’s presidency and is the “man the job needs.”
Oshiotse enthused that in the Nigeria Political narratives of today, His Excellency, Right Honourable Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi (aka CRA) is one entity like no other. He is indeed the recurrent decimal in the many essential imperatives which our national conversation has placed on the shoulders of who the next President of Nigeria should be.
One of such criteria, according to Oshiotse, is age. Here, CRA is youthful, energetic, and uniquely sound, to withstand the routine demands of the office. A healthy 57 years old Man is a transformation catalyst. And his blemish records so far under this age bracket are enough verses for human political evangelism in this respect, he stated.
The second criterion, worth a consideration, is the political sagacity and economic knowledge of a presidential candidate. Amaechi, Right Honourable House Speaker for 8years, an excellent Governor for 8years, and, currently, a two-time revolutionary Minister, is no ordinary Political figure in the Nigeria tough terrain, RATAN maintains.
“Staying this long and still grinding our Political gear to greater level is worthy of an applause and demonstrates CRA’s systemic understanding of the political temperature of Nigeria. Apparently, he is endowed with the required brilliance to de-temperature, treat and manage Nigeria’s uniqueness: be it in Culture, Security, Education & Technology, Transportation, Economy & Infrastructures and Human Capital endowment of our nation to optimum limits,” Oshiotse quipped.
A political bridge between the old and young, the North and South, the political class and political parties, politicians and academics or non-politicians, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is a workaholic and dynamic team player. The phenomenal transformation of Nigeria’s transport system via the Nigeria Railways and the establishment of a University of Transportation in Nigeria speak volumes in these regards.
Speaking of political sagacity, it is important to remind Nigerians, Oshiotse said, that it took the likes of CRA with our current President, President Muhammadu Buhari among others, to take a timely decision to rescue Nigeria from the clutches of PDP in 2015 after 16 years of political and economical improvement of our dear country.
It is for these reasons that RATAN is calling on his political party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, to adopt Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as its flagbearer for the presidency.
The group, RATAN, posits that CRA brings the presence of mind and the pan-Nigerian perspective to confronting terrorism, combating corruption, rolling back agitations for secession, and getting the economy to fire on all its cylinders.
Amid chants of “APC!!! CRA here, CRA there, CRA, CRA is everywhere,” the group leader requested Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi to formally present himself for the run for the coveted office of Nigeria’s president, under the APC.
