The Director General, President Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo 2019 Campaign Council, Rotimi Amaechi has dismissed the opposition Peoples Democratic party, PDP, as “broke and hungry”.
Amaechi, a former Governor of Rivers State, spoke in Bauchi at a political rally organised to receive 18 prominent PDP members in the state who had defected to the APC.
Amaechi said, “They [PDP] are broke; they are hungry and want to come back to steal.
“Because they are broke, they are looking for cheap means of fund and we look at them when they say you are hungry.
“They have easily forgotten that they stole $2 billion US Dollars to prosecute 2015 election but we won.”
Amaechi, who is the Minister of Transportation, added, ”We listen to our colleagues at the other divide and say that you are hungry because they stole all the money meant for you.
“We want to assure you that we will not fail you and will never fail you. Bauchi is our traditional state we come to rest not to campaign.
“I was here in 2015 and saw what politicians called mammoth crowd, that is crowd that cannot be counted.”
