Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai has revealed why President Muhammadu Buhari loves the former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
The Kaduna governor revealed that Buhari loves Amaechi because of his decision to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC, during Goodluck Jonathan’s regime.
He revealed this when Amaechi met with APC delegates from Kaduna ahead of the party’s national convention.
“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 stated.
