2023: Amaechi Speaks On Joining PDP, Opens Up On APC’s Muslim-Muslim Ticket
A former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has responded to reports that he is set to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former Rivers State Governor also reacted to claims that he is not in support of the APC Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket because it contradicts his belief as a devout catholic.
Naturenex understands a former Senior Special Adviser to former Vice President Namadi Sambo on Media and Publicity Umar Sani had claimed Amaechi is on his way to the PDP.
He also said according to reports that Amaechi won’t support the Bola Tinubu/Kashim Shettima ticket of the APC because it’s a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
The former aide was quoted to have made the submission on a Twitter programme, HardTalk.
“I’m glad to tell you that in Rivers state, PDP has gotten Amaechi because he (Amaechi) said he is a Catholic and will not support Muslim-Muslim ticket. He is going to support PDP.
“So if there is somebody who can match Wike madness for madness, boxing for boxing, it’s Amaechi” Sani was quoted to have said.
However, when contacted by DAILY INDEPENDENT, Amaechi denied the claims made by the former vice presidential media aide, describing them as total lies.
“He is lying. There was never any time I said anything like that” the former Transport Minister said.
