Kidney Renal artery atherosclerosis

In UW, there is a question with corresponding explanation that says renal artery atherosclerosis causes severe, ongoing drug resistant hypertension in a 60 year old male due to increased secretion of renin.
Is it true?
Can we not correct this secondary hypertention by giving ACEI, ARBs, or Renin antagonist?
Any suggestions plz?
