Former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi arrived in Kano State on Wednesday, May 18, Naija News reports.
Amaechi, as seen in a viral video shared by Daily Trust today, met with APC stakeholders in the state.
Though the agenda of the meeting is yet to be made public, Naija News understands it could be unconnected with the former minister’s 2023 presidential bid.

Naija News recalls that Taraba State chairman of the APC, Barr. Ibrahim Tukur El-Sudi, had on Monday promised that the state party delegates would give 90 per cent of their votes to Amaechi to win the party’s presidential ticket.
The APC chairman made the disclosure during Amaechi’s presidential consultative visit to Jalingo, the state capital.
El-Sufi said the party was grateful for what he referred to as Amaechi’s enormous interest in Taraba State and pledged in consonance with the delegates to deliver at least 90 per cent of their votes to the aspirant to clinch the party presidential ticket.
“Our delegates know how to separate the chaff from the grain, we are assuring you that 90 per cent of our votes will go to you. Our Emir has already spoken, therefore you should be guaranteed of 90 per cent (delegate votes).
“You are a grassroots politician, we know how you came up in Rivers State to become a member of House of Assembly, Governor two times and by the grace of God you just resigned as a Minister. Most of our delegates are legislators and I believe they will be very much comfortable with you” El-Sudi assured.
