ABUJA – Director General, Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress APC, Rotimi Amaechi has said the long years of misrule of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP caused hunger in the land, asking Nigerians to direct their anger towards the PDP and not President Muhammadu Buhari.

President Buhari with Director of Election Planning and Monitoring Babatunde Fashola, Director Contacts and Mobilization Hadiza Bala Usman, DG Campaign Council Rotimi Amaechi and APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomole as he visits Campaign Headquarters in Abuja where he received updates on the performance of APC in the Presidential Elections on 25th Feb 2019

This was as he said the council is satisfied with the votes it garnered for President Buhari in the February 23 Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The council also reacted to the statement credited to the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Prince Uche Secondus that President Buhari was not prepared to conduct an election in 2023, saying the PDP Chairman was not in a position to make such categorical statement.

In a pre-election briefing Tuesday in Abuja, Amaechi who is also the Minister of Transportation said not even the President could stop the process since it was a Constitutional matter.

“I have said as the former Chairman of Governors’ Forum – Reno Omokri or whatever his name is has continued to say it is a lie – in the account of the excess crude was N68 billion when Obasanjo was going. If they left N68 billion in ECA, N8.7 billion is the railway project from Lagos to Kano, so we would have had money now. Lagos to Calabar is $11.1 billion, we could have had railway from Lagos to Calabar.

“Nobody wants to ask that where is that money that Obasanjo left behind? As far as you are concerned, you are hungry, it is Buhari that caused it. Caused what?

“You should not blame PDP? We are not blaming PDP, but I am a student of history; history is the study of past events and the present.” he said.

Speaking on the spread of the President’s votes, Amaechi said; “We are satisfied with the number of votes that he scored. Don’t forget the votes in south-east put together was 198,000 in Rivers he scored 65,000 even after that, they were writing results. About 15.5 million Nigerians came out and said Buhari, we are satisfied with what you are doing, but again we must be humble in victory”, he added.
