The Minister of Transportation and the Director-General, President Muhammadu Buhari re-election campaign committee, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, has declared that the All Progressives Congress, APC, will coast to victory in 2019 despite series of mass defection from the party.
The Minister, in an interview with Daily Sun, also urged Nigerians to reject the return of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2019. Amaechi also stated that it was only God that will determine if Buhari will win the 2019 presidential election or not. Talking about the recent defections that even saw the Senate President decamping to the PDP, Amaechi said it was already too late for the defections to make huge impact on the ruling party.
He added, “You will say that it [defection] happened during our time, but we sold our candidate one year ahead of the election. They are doing it just six months to the election. It was clear who will be APC presidential candidate one year ahead of time.”
