2023: Emir Of Damaturu, Gov Buni Drum Support For Amaechi In Yobe

Tue May 24th, 2022 - Yobe

The Emir of Damaturu, HRH Alhaji Dr. Shehu Hashimi Ibn Elkanemi II, has called on Nigerians to support the presidential ambition of former Transportation Minister, Rt Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, a frontline aspirant in the forthcoming presidential primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) slated for this weekend.

The Yobe traditional ruler made the call while receiving the presidential aspirant at his palace in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital, Monday.

He said, “I know much about you, I know the experience you have and the challenges you have gone through. With your track record, when you become the President, you will deliver as expected. I pray that you will be supported by Nigerians to be the President of this country.

“We will support you in prayer, we will support you in all aspects that we are able to, to see that you excel. The transformation of this great country seen under the Ministry of Transportation which you were the Minister, needs to be commended. We know the role you played and we know how much you have done,” the Emir said.

Also, during a courtesy call on the Yobe State governor, Mai Mala Buni, at Government House Damaturu, the governor said with Amaechi’s pedigree, it would only be proper for Nigerians to support him to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

He said the country requires someone who would continue in the implementation of the lofty policies of the present administration, hence the need to support the former Transport Minister.

“We need continuity and consolidation with innovation to ensure that what we are enjoying today as a nation would at least continue, because we cannot afford to start afresh, we cannot afford to risk having new hand.

“Your Excellency, you will agree with me that most of the developed nations were developed as a result of continuity of policy and programmes, unbroken chain of leadership. In Nigeria, a two-time Director General of a Presidential campaign and one of the most trusted and active member of cabinet, who has always been there for Mr. President to kickstart everything that will move the nation forward because all the campaign promises are on his fingertips, is fit.
