A former Minister of Transportation and presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, has assured delegates of the party in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) of better representation if they help him clinch APC’s presidential ticket and proceed to win the general elections in 2023.

Amaechi gave the assurance during his consultative meeting with delegates of the party in Abuja, Tuesday night.

He promised: “If you elect me as your president, ministers will know their portfolio before they get to the National Assembly so that when the National Assembly is interviewing a minister, they’ll interview the minister to know his capacity, to see how qualified he is to be minister for transport, for instance. So that when they are asked questions, it will border on how they can tackle challenges in those sectors.”

He said ministers from the 36 states and the FCT would be appointed by their people after stakeholders’ meetings to nominate at least three names from their states. This, he noted, is to ensure transparency and accountability.

“Where you give us two females, there must be one man. Where you give us two men, there must be one woman, preferably, one man, one woman and one youth.

“When they bring those names, the leadership of the party at the national level will sit and choose one out of the three. The only ones I will be privileged to appoint would be the extras.”
