I rejected Jonathan’s offer, entreaties to remain in PDP – Amaechi
Former governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has revealed that former President Goodluck Jonathan gave him several offers for him not to leave PDP, but he refused.
He said, he isn’t a tribalist, but opted to work for success of Muhammadu Buhari, the then presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, who eventually won the 2015 presidential election.
Amaechi stated this in Portharcourt on Saturday while receiving some politicians who defected from the PDP to the APC in the state.
Those who defected from PDP to APC are the former Commissioner for Chieftaincy and Community Affairs, Dr John Bazia; Chief Alabo Michael West, Chima Obinna and Chief Salvation Ezengwogwo.
Ameachi noted that he would resume prayer sessions from next year, recalling that former President Goodluck Jonathan fought him because he left PDP.
He said, “Next year, we are starting prayer sessions. You know, when Goodluck (Jonathan) fought us, he was not fighting me, he was fighting God and I knew he would fail.
“Tell them, from next year prayer will start. I will come to Port Harcourt like I used to and I will say this will happen and it will happen.
“Let me tell you who I am. I do not drink, I have never tasted alcohol in my life. I don’t smoke; I am not tribalistic. Whether in Rivers State or in Nigeria, I am not tribalistic.
‘If I were tribalistic, President Goodluck Jonathan offered me an opportunity to remain in the PDP, he offered me all sorts of opportunities and I said that I have given my allegiance to Buhari because I am not tribalistic.”
