Chidi Samuel || Nigeria’s minister of transportation and former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi has said that the ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC) will ‘go home and rest’ if it loses the 2019 elections.
Amaechi spoke at a reception organised for him as grand patron of Ikwerre Youth Movement (IYM) in Rivers state.
The minister who said that the 2019 general election will be APC’s last battle, however, assured that President Muhammadu Buhari will provide a level playing field for all the political parties.
“The 2019 elections, especially the governorship, are our last battle. If we win, we will take over Rivers State. If we lose in the election, we will go home and rest,” Amaechi said.
“We will not impose any candidate. Anybody who will go for any position, like chairmanship, should go for primaries. Anybody who wins will be the party’s candidate.
“The President said that there would be no rigging during the 2019 elections. It is to our advantage.
“Go and register to be eligible to vote and to put the candidates of your choice in power.
“As Ikwerre people, we must give out the power to other ethnic nationalities. But we will be in a position to take it back at any time. Your future is in your hands.”
