Former Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has congratulated Bola Tinubu on his emergence as the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Tinubu won the election by a landslide, beating Ameachi, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and 10 others. He polled a total of 1,271 votes – more than four times the votes scored by his closet rival, Amaechi who had 316 votes.

Following his victory, a flurry of congratulatory messages has been pouring in for the ex-Lagos State Governor from many APC chieftains, serving governors and his main rival in the 2023 general elections – Atiku Abubakar, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate.

In a statement, he personally signed on Wednesday, Amaechi, who came a distant second, pledged to support Tinubu in ensuring that the APC maintains its grip on power next year.

“Congratulations on your well-deserved victory at the APC Presidential Convention held on 07 – 08 June 2022 and extend my best wishes as you prepare for the 2023 Presidential Elections,” the statement partly read.

“I am confident that your victory will re-energize the progressive ideals of our great party APC, buttressed by your mission of a Common Sense Revolution which led to the defeat of PDP in the 2015 general elections.

“As you embark on this historic journey I wish to assure you of my commitment to your success at the polls in 2023 and ultimately look forward to providing the necessary support to ensure that we develop a prosperous country for all Nigerians. Please accept the assurances of my highest esteem.”
