A former Minister of Transportation and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Rotimi Amaechi has denied claims that he will soon announce his support for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in respect of the forthcoming 2023 elections.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Umar Sani, a former Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Vice President Namadi Sambo had on Twitter programme HardTalk reportedly disclosed that the former Rivers State Governor had said as a devout Catholic, he cannot support a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket of the APC.
“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 had said.
Reacting to that claim, Amaechi denied it, saying he is a total falsehood.
“He is lying. There was never any time I said anything like that,” Daily Independent quotes the former Minister as saying on Friday.
