Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transport, was among dozens of All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders inaugurated into the Presidential Campaign Council of the party in Abuja on Monday.
This is despite the emergence of leaked audios during which the former Rivers Governor, among others, criticised Buhari as someone who “doesn’t care” and “doesn’t listen to anybody”.
“The President does not listen to anybody. He doesn’t care. You can write what you want to write. Does he read?” Amaechi had said in the audio.
“I was flying with him in the aircraft and we saw a news report where a goat seller was complaining that he couldn’t sell his goats during Sallah because of Buhari’s administration. And the President said, ‘what is my business with goat sellers’”?
Apart from Amaechi, Minister of Transport, who is the sole Director-General, of the campaign council, present at the ceremony were Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the party, who along with President Muhammadu Buhari is the Co-Chairman; and Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman, who joins Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as the two deputy chairmen.
