Transportation Minister and presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rotimi Amaechi has expressed his loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC as he gears up for the 2023 presidency.
A statement from his media office said Amaechi spoke during a consultative meeting with executives, delegates and other party faithful at the Rivers State APC Secretariat on Friday, indicating that in his bid to become the President of Nigeria which he is thoroughly qualified for, he is neither desperate nor disloyal.

Amaechi explained that it was sad that many politicians do not understand the concept of loyalty.
“Loyalty is not when you are not chosen, you become disloyal; loyalty means you follow the man that leads you. I am a very loyal person and those who are disloyal, I wish them well; those who want to do whatever they want to do, I wish them well.
“The opportunity will be given to everybody; we will run this presidential election; we will run, and I am loyal to the president and I am loyal to the party. If the party says it is me, thank God. If the party says it is not me, whoever the party chooses, I will support. If the party and the president chooses anybody, I will support the person; if the party chooses me, I will be glad and say thank God,” Amaechi said.
