Minister of Transportation and aspirant of the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC), Rotimi Amaechi has officially resigned from the Federal cabinet

Amaechi said his resignation comes as he has decided to focus on his aspiration to be president.

His action comes after President Buhari ordered Ministers and appointees with political ambition to resign. Amaechi's resignation has been clouded with some uncertainty as he stayed on while some ministers resigned.

However, the minister finally tendered his resignation and it was contained in a statement by the Amaechi Presidential Media Committee, signed by Kingsley Wali.

The former Rivers State Governor expressed gratitude to Buhari for considering him for the position of a minister.

Amaechi noted that the Transportation Ministry recorded significant achievements since the inception of Buhari’s administration.

According to Amaechi: “It is with mixed feelings that I tender my resignation as the Minister of Transportation of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to contest for the Presidential ticket of our great party, the All Progressives Congress.

“Your Excellency, it has been a great honour and privilege serving as a member of your cabinet following your historic victory at the polls in 2015. Under your administration, the Ministry of Transportation has recorded significant achievements, made possible by your visionary support and commitment to ensuring that we deliver on our mandate.

“As I embark on the next phase of our mission to work towards a better Nigeria for all Nigerians, I humbly seek Your Excellency’s prayers, blessings and look towards your continuous support and guidance.”
