2023 presidential aspirant under the All Progressive Congress, APC, Chief Rotimi Amaechi has urged Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State to step down for him.
The immediate past Minister of Transportation made the appeal on Friday night while addressing Kogi state APC delegates ahead of the party presidential primary.
The former Governor of Rivers State called on the delegates to prevail on the Governor, Yahaya Bello to step down his ambition for elderly people like him.
Amaechi said: “This is the 28th state I will be visiting. I can no longer be called one of the APC aspirants because I have become the leading aspirant.
“I was Speaker at the age of 34, Governor at the age of 42, and a minister in my early 50’s. I have acquired the needed experiences to lead Nigeria.
“I was a former chairman of Speakers’ forum, two term Chairman of Governorship forum, coupled with my interaction as Presidential DG campaign, I have what it takes to govern a country like ours,”
