Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation, on Saturday, disclosed why he abandoned former President Goodluck Jonathan for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
The former Rivers State Governor noted that Jonathan offered him every opportunity to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party but he rejected the offer.
He further stated that he supported the candidacy of Buhari in 2015 because he is not tribalistic.

The minister added that whatever he says in Rivers State would happen, adding that he would soon return to declare prayers in the state.
He claimed that God gave him victory over Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
“If I were tribalistic, President Goodluck Jonathan offered me the opportunity to remain in PDP, he offered me all sort of opportunities and I said that I have given my allegiance to Buhari because I am not tribalistic.”
