Kilifi County Governor Amason Kingi says that his ambition to contest for the presidency in 2022 is still alive.

The ODM governor who is serving his last term in office says that he has not quit the presidential race.

Speaking on Tuesday at Pwani University in Kilifi County during a consultative forum organised by the Building Bridges Initiative Committee, Kingi said that his silence does not mean that he has quit the 2022 presidential race.

According to Kingi, he is tightly in the 2022 presidential race but he is first concentrating on finishing the projects his administration started when he took office in 2013.

“I am still in the race and competitors should not celebrate yet,” he said.

Governor Kingi said that he has what it takes to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.

He said that the country needs a committed leader who will address the issues facing Kenyans.

The Kilifi governor further said that it is time for the presidential seat to go to the Coast region.

He claimed that the coastal region has been neglected adding that its leaders must unite and fight for their rights.

Kingi is among top politicians who have declared an interest in the 2022 presidential seat.

Others are Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Deputy President William Ruto, and Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua.
