Why I turned down Jonathan’s support and embraced Buhari in 2015 – Amaechi

The Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, has claimed that former President Goodluck Jonathan offered him every opportunity to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, but he rejected it. He said the reason he supported PMB in 2015 was that he is non-tribalistic

The former governor of Rivers State spoke at the reception of some defected PDP members to APC  in Port Harcourt on Saturday. 

The minister bragged that whatever he says in Rivers State would happen, adding that he would soon return to declare prayers in the state.

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

“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”.

‘If I were tribalistic, President Goodluck Jonathan offered me the opportunity to remain in PDP, he offered me all sort of opportunities and I said that I have given my allegiance to Buhari because I am not tribalistic”.
