Amaechi Igbo Man Period – Former Imo State Deputy Governor

Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi

A former Deputy Governor of Imo State, Eze Madumere, has stated that the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, is an Igbo man.

The issue of whether Amaechi is an Igbo man or not has taken a centre stage since it became glaring that he was planning to contest the 2023 Presidential election, which the South East region has maintained should be zoned to it. The South Eastern Nigeria is peopled by the Igbos. Amaechi is from the Igbo speaking part of Rivers State in the South South region.

Speaking at Owerri, the Imo State capital, Madumere described Amaechi as an Igbo man that is qualified to represent the Igbo’s in the struggle for Nigeria’s Presidency in 2023.

He said:

“I cannot believe that people are debating the Minister of Transport, Hon. Chibuike Amaechi’s tribe. He is an Igbo man, period. Ohaneze Ndigbo as the apex socio-cultural Igbo body has already done the needful. Amaechi is on the list of Igbo sons presented to the Nation.

“Igbo is very large in population in Nigeria. We are found in Delta State, Benue and South South. Mind you, the Amaechi you are talking about is more of an Imo State person geographically. From Ngor-Okpala there, you walk into his Community. We understand quite well why Rivers State was created.

“It is wrong for people from Igbo parts of Rivers State to deny their tribe. I say so because we are all aware of the politics that led to the creation of Rivers State. Denialism is something every Igbo man in any State at all should never fall to.

“We are all Nigerians but we all have where we cone from before the amalgamation of the Southern and Northern protectorate. We are in our different vehicles to achieve one goal of making the desired change and bringing development to the country while improving the welfare of our people.

“The All Progressives Congress can boast of a galaxy of leaders who are experienced, young, energetic and equipped in all ramifications in the South.”
