Leaked Audio: 'Resign and Return to PDP' – Atiku Tells Amaechi


The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has asked the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, to return to the main opposition party.

Speaking through his Media Aide, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku asked Amaechi, to resign and return to the PDP, a party he left in 2014.

Amaechi served his two terms as governor and speaker of the Rivers state House of Assembly under the PDP.

Still speaking on the leaked audio where Amaechi reportedly lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku said it took courage for the minister to take such a step.

He said, “We lament the shabby treatment of Amaechi for speaking truth to power in a leaked audio tape which led to his being made a ceremonial director general of the president’s re-election campaign organization.

“We dare say that the cold war between the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Mr. Rotimi Amaechi as well as the statements credited to the latter in a leaked tape which led to the appointment of Tinubu to take charge of the campaigns are at the least a national embarrassment to the nation.

” Amaechi must now resign and return home to the PDP where he belongs.”
