First republic Minister of Aviation, Mbazulike Amaechi has said it is time for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar to rule Nigeria.
Amaechi stated this while reacting to the choice of Peter Obi as Atiku’s running mate.
DAILY POST earlier reported that Atiku opted for the former Governor as his running mate in the 2019 presidential tussle because of his vast knowledge of global and local economics.
Amaechi in a statement described Obi and the former Vice President as a good team which will manage Nigeria’s economy.
He, however, advised the ruling party, APC, against rigging the presidential election in 2019.
He said: “Peter Obi is an experienced politician, administrator, and businessman. Obi and Atiku are widely exposed.
“Nigeria needs an enlightened government that will manage our economy very well. This is Atiku’s time to reign and with Peter Obi, I think it is a good team.
“I don’t know how the South West will take it but I want to advice the APC against rigging the elections.
“The things I saw in Ekiti and Osun states were not elections.”
