Peter Obi To Amaechi: You Are Not Competent To Speak On 2023



Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Vice Presidential Candidate and Former Anambra State Governor,  Mr. Peter Obi has declared that the Minister of Transportation,  Rotimi Amaechi lacks the competence to talk about which geo-political zone will produce the President in 2023 because he lacks political relevance in his native Rivers State.

Addressing journalists after the lecture/book presentation  in honour of Rivers State Governor,  Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt on Monday,  Peter Obi wondered why Amaechi who is not from the South East would want to speak for the zone.

Flanked by Senator Uche Ekwunife and Senator-Elect, Sandy Onoh,  Obi said: “Amaechi is not from the South East, so he cannot  speak for us. 

“He is not in any position  to make such statements because even  him that is in APC, he did not contribute anything to the success of that election. 

“He did not even achieve  anything  in his own state. Those of us from the South East who are from the PDP contributed  to the success of our party”.

The former Anambra State Governor added: “For example, PDP in my state got 95 percent. They (APC) didn’t even get 25 percent in Rivers State. So, he is not competent to speak on the Presidency in 2023”.

On the growing insecurity in the country, Obi said the only way to achieve peace is for the Buhari Administration to unite the people and tackle insecurity headlong. 

“Everybody has to be involved. The President has to work with the governors and the Governors should work with the local government councils. We are Nigerians. We have no other country, so everyone must be involved, ” he said.

The PDP Vice Presidential Candidate said that the major way to end insecurity  is to create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths.

He said: “As Long as the youths remain unemployed, we have a crisis.”
