I am forever loyal to Buhari, APC, says Amaechi


A presidential aspirant on the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform, Rotimi Amaechi, has expressed his loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling party.

“I am loyal to the president, and I am loyal to the party,” Mr Amaechi said at a consultative meeting with executives, delegates and other party faithful at the Rivers APC Secretariat.

The Minister of Transportation said that he was neither desperate nor disloyal in his bid to become the president of Nigeria.

The two terms governor of Rivers state said it was sad that many politicians did not understand the concept of loyalty.

“Loyalty is not when you are not chosen, you become disloyal, loyalty means you follow the man that leads you, that you have surrendered to his leadership.

“If you don’t follow, it means you are not loyal, you are only benefitting from the man politically and economically. The day he’s not able to give you that economic reality, is the day you become disloyal.

“I am a very loyal person, and those who are disloyal, I wish them well, those who want to do whatever they want to do, I wish them well,” he said.

He maintained that everybody will have the opportunity, and all will run in the presidential election.

“If the party says it is me, thank God. If the party says it is not me, whoever the party chooses, I will support.

“If the party and president chooses anybody, I will support the person, if the party chooses me, I will be glad and say thank God,” Mr Amaechi said.
