The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Saturday, disclosed why he abandoned former President Goodluck Jonathan for President Muhammadu Buhari, prior to the 2015 general elections,
The former Rivers State Governor, noted that Jonathan offered him every opportunity to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, but he rejected the offer.
He further stated that he supported the candidacy of President Muhammadu Buhari, in 2015, because he is not a tribalistic man.
Amaechi revealed this in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, while receiving some party members who defected from the PDP.
The Minister added that whatever he says in Rivers State would happen, stating that, he would soon return to declare prayers in the State.
He claimed that God gave him victory over Goodluck Jonathan, in 2015.
“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 do not 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.”
