The Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, has said even if President Muhammadu Buhari is on sick bed he will win the election in 2019, he made this known in while de-boarding a train during his inspection of Itakpe-Ajaokuta-Warri project in Delta State.
Amaechi also said that the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal and Senate President, Bukola Saraki will leave the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to take a shot at the presidency on another platform but their exit will not alter President Buhari’s victory in both states.
Amaechi while fielding questions on Friday from journalists after de-boarding a train during his inspection of Itakpe-Ajaokuta-Warri project in Delta State, “No matter what you do, the governor of Sokoto will leave naturally because he had the ambition of being the president in 2019 and even if you take a chicken to him he will still leave. It is same with Kwara.”
“These are people you expect they will leave. They left with members of the National Assembly but they came from the areas that the President is very comfortable. Do you honestly believe that the President will lose election in Sokoto? It is one of his comfort zones.”
President Buhari will still win no matter who exits the party, he boasted.
“The next persons that left are from Bauchi and if you bring the president on a sick bed in Bauchi he will win. He has never lost election in that state. If you bring him on a sick bed in Kano, he will win. Well, that is being arrogant on our side.
“Again, you will say that it happened during our time but we sold our candidate one year but they are doing it six months to the election. It was clear who will be APC candidate one year ahead of time.”
