Rotimi Amaechi the minister of Transportation, has revealed his plan ahead of the 2023 general elections.
According to report, Amaechi spoke on his next plan noted that he has no presidential interest in the forthcoming election.
Amaechi in an interview with Daily Trust, however, stated that he would pursue a PhD programme and keep to lecturing thereafter.
The minister when asked what his mission was in Taraba State said, “I am a minister and I don’t want to get sacked until the president is satisfied that I should go. Anyone that said I was in Taraba for a meeting is lying. I got to Taraba by accident through a friend whose daughter was wedding. I went there and came back. Mischievously, one of the Nigerian newspapers wrote that I went for a political meeting. I like the way Muslims organise their weddings. Five minutes, it was over, 10 minutes we were eating and in 30 minutes, we were at the airport. How can a political meeting take place in 30 minutes? The event was so well organized. After the event, a vehicle took us back to the airport.”
The minister when asked what plan does he have for 2023 said, “I will sleep”.
He, however, disclosed that when he wakes from his sleep he would do a PhD programme.
Amaechi said, “I will do a PhD programme. I have a master’s degree and I am doing a Law programme at the Baze University, so when I wake up I will do my PhD to teach in a university.”
Meanwhile, NMA has served Buhari government 21 days notice to resolve issues with NARD, others
The Nigerian Medical Association has given the federal government a 21 days notice to fully resolve all the issues contained in the various agreements signed with its affiliate members.
The Nigerian Medical body warned the government to resolve its issues with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, MDCAN, the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, and the Medical and Dental Specialist Association in Basic Medical Sciences, MEDSABAMS.
The warning followed a National Executive Council meeting of the association in Edo State to discuss the current impasse between the government and resident doctors.

”In the event that the FG fails to implement the agreements after the expiration of the 21- days notice, NMA shall summon an emergency delegate meeting to review the progress made on the implementation of the agreements.
