2023: You cannot speak for South East, Obi tells Amaechi
Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has lambasted Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, for saying the Igbo have no chance of suceeding President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
The former governor of Anambra State said Amaechi was not in a position to make such comment, as he failed to deliver the All Progressives Congress (APC) in his home state.
Obi, in a chat with newsmen at the Rivers State Government House in Port Harcourt, mocked Amaechi over the outcome of the general elections in the state.
According to Pin, “he is not from South East so he cannot speak for us. He is not in a position to make such statements.
“He didn’t even contribute anything to the success of that election for his party. He did not achieve anything in his own state.
“Those of us from the South East in the PDP contributed to the success of our party.
“For example, PDP in my state got 95 percent and they (APC) didn’t even get 25 percent in Rivers. So, he is not competent to speak on that”.
