Rotimi Amaechi, the past Minister of transportation, claimed that individuals who participated in the All-Progressives Congress, APC, and presidential primaries regret their choice.
Delegates who let money influence their choices during the presidential primaries, according to Amaechi, are now regretting it.
On the weekend in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Apostle Eugene Ogu, General Overseer of Abundant Life Evangel Mission, celebrated his 60th birthday. The former APC presidential candidate spoke at the event.
He said that spending money to buy votes will not make Nigeria’s issues go away.
Amaechi also urged religious leaders to pray for Nigerians in general so they can choose a leader who will address the nation’s issues as president.
“Those who voted at the APC primaries, who are they?” asks Amaechi. Ordinary Nigerians describe them. Since the small amount of money, they received took care of their immediate issue, they are now claiming that they erred, and you are now hearing conflicting accounts. “Giving money is not the solution to Nigeria’s problem,” someone once said. “If you are praying for us, pray for the leadership of the country, but also pray for regular Nigerians to be able to choose the appropriate President to manage the country. You all need to get up in order to solve Nigeria’s issue.
Bola Tinubu, the party’s flagbearer, defeated Amaechi in the APC presidential primary in Abuja.
The former governor of Rivers State finished second to Tinubu, who received the most votes.
According to reports, vote-buying tainted the APC presidential primaries.
