The Minister of Transportation and Chairman of the President Muhammadu Buhari Presidential Campaign Council, Rotimi Amaechi has assured Nigerians that the President will perform better than 2015 if reelected in the forthcoming election.
Amaechi stated this in an exclusive interview with Dailytrust in Abuja on Thursday. He expressed optimism that the President would win the presidential elections.
“We will do better in 2019. A part of the 2015 election was rigged by PDP. But this time we are closing all rigging against even ourselves. If you speak to the President, one of the things he says is that he wants to bequeath to Nigerians the ability to choose their leaders and be held accountable for the weakness and strength of those leaders.
“So you don’t elect a leader for them and say they are responsible for the failures of the leader. The president is determined to do that.”
He accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of masterminding the prevailing poverty in the country, stressing that the depletion and diversion of the treasury was responsible for the current state of the economy.
“The PDP strategy is clear. Our strategy is clear. PDP says our people are hungry and the economy is bad. We have our replies. The first reply is that Nigerians are hungry because PDP carted away all the money.”
“If they left the money, we would have managed it in a way that Nigerians will have food to eat. What creates food is what creates job. If you create job, you create food. But you don’t create jobs when there are no resources.”
