Rotimi Amaechi

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has revealed why he abandoned former President, Goodluck Jonathan for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

The former Rivers State Governor noted that Jonathan offered him every opportunity to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party but he rejected the offer.

He further stated that he supported the candidacy of Buhari in 2015 because he is not tribalistic.

Amaechi stated this in Port Harcourt on Saturday while receiving some party members who defected from the PDP.

He further claimed that God gave him victory over Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.

“You know, when Goodluck fought us, he was not fighting me, he was fighting God and I knew he would fail.

“Tell them from next year prayer will start, I will come to Port Harcourt like I used to come and I will say this will happen and it will happen.”

“Let me tell you who I am; I do not drink, I have never tasted alcohol in my life, I don’t smoke; I am not tribalistic. Whether in Rivers State or in Nigeria, I am not tribalistic.”
