Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has given particulars why Rotimi Amaechi, the outgone Minister of Transportation is cherished by President Muhamamdu Buhari.
In line with Rufai, Buhari loves Amaechi as a result of his determination to defect from the Peoples Democratic Social gathering, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the course of the period of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He disclosed this when Amaechi met with APC delegates from Kaduna forward of the celebration’s nationwide conference.
El-Rufai recalled wooing Amaechi and another governors into the APC in the course of the PDP administration.
“Let me let you know my historical past with Amaechi. After we began discussing with the G-7, the seven governors that wished to defect to the APC, I used to be holding nocturnal conferences with Amaechi and Governor Nyako of Adamawa State till we acquired 5 of them to maneuver to our celebration, and that was the game-changer.
“And so that you can perceive how troublesome it’s, think about Amaechi of Rivers State from the identical South-South with incumbent President Jonathan.
“He made the sacrifice to move to our party. It was a game-changer. This is part of the reason President Buhari loves Minister Amaechi till tomorrow,” El-Rufai mentioned.
