The Minister of Transportation and former governor of Rivers State, Chibuike Amaechi, has revealed reason why he supported President Buhari instead of Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 presidential election.
Amaechi claimed that former President Goodluck Jonathan offered him every opportunity to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, but he rejected it.
Amechi made this revelation while speaking in Port Harcourt on Saturday as he received some party members who defected from the PDP.
“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”, Amaechi was quoted as saying.
