2023 Presidency: El-Rufai Reveals Why Buhari Loves Amaechi

President Muhammadu Buhari’s fondness for Rotimi Amaechi, the outgoing Minister of Transportation, has been revealed by Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

Buhari adores Amaechi, according to Rufai, because of his choice to desert from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC, during former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

When Amaechi met with APC delegates from Kaduna ahead of the party’s national convention, he revealed this.

During the PDP government, El-Rufai remembers luring Amaechi and other governors into the APC.

“Let me tell you my history with Amaechi. When we started discussing with the G-7, the seven governors that wanted to defect to the APC, I was holding nocturnal meetings with Amaechi and Governor Nyako of Adamawa State until we got five of them to move to our party, and that was the game-changer.

“And for you to understand how difficult it is, imagine Amaechi of Rivers State from the same 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 said.
