The Director General of the Bola Tinubu Campaign Organization, Abdulmumin Jibrin has reacted to the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi running round the Port Harcourt stadium before declaring for 2023 presidency on Saturday.
Recall that Naija News earlier reported that Amaechi declared his intention to run for the 2023 presidency during a Thanksgiving service organized by the APC.
Before announcing his presidential aspirations the Minister had ran round the stadium.
Nigerians had alleged that Amaechi was indirectly mocking the All Progressives Congress, APC, leaders, Abdullahi Adamu, Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu, who cannot indulge in such physical activity due to their various health challenges.
Reacting on Twitter, Jibrin, said Amaechi’s intention was not to mock Tinubu, Buhari and Adamu, instead the politician was trying to save time.
He wrote: “It’s unfair to Minister Amaechi for some people to think that by running round the stadium, he was trying to mock the age of incumbent President Buhari, brand new APC Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu and incoming president, Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I believe he was only trying to save time.”
