Buhari reportedly appoints Amaechi as 2019 Campaign Director



Buhari reportedly appoints Amaechi as 2019 Campaign Director - BellaNaija

President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi as his 2019 reelection campaign director-general, ThisDay reports.

Amaechi, who was Buhari’s campaign director in 2015, has reportedly been issued a letter of appointment christening him the campaign director for Buhari’s reelection bid.

While the president has refused to make known his position for the 2019 elections, he has according to ThisDay informed Amaechi, and a group known as the “Buharists,” of his intention to run.

The Buharists group was reportedly formed by Amaechi during the height of growing criticism against the president, in order to turn around the narrative around the president, and includes governors, ministers, and chieftains with the All Progressives Congress (APC).

ThisDay reports that Amaechi is expected to make public his appointment soon, and has begun to consult with critical party members and stakeholders for the president’s reelection in 2019.

A source who spoke to ThisDay said APC National Leader Bola Tinubu told those who approached him regarding the reelection of the president that although the South-West’s backing of Buhari in 2015 was based on trust, the conditions for 2019 would involve proper negotiations.

He is reported to have said: “Let it be known that we supported him in 2015 based on trust. This time, around, we have to negotiate proper agreement.”

      So, Buhari truly wants a second term?
      Wharefa. All I know is that one day, Mr. tortoise sets out on a journey, when asked when he’ll be back, he said “Not until I have been disgraced”. Buhari, your day of disgrace is around the corner. Greedy Kwench and wake President. Oshisco.

    And Amechi is going to hire red media into dececiving the youth once again. Lets wake up and be smart for once as a collective. I know we are all hubgry but please let folks think of just more han immediate gain. You may make $300 billion from campaugn, but these folks have no real vision for nigeria. Forget all the nonsense, even if you live in Banana Island you are poor- we all dont have access to decebt infrastructure. Rich people the biggest threat to your children’s future is not your inability to transfer down your so called riches, it will be the dearth of social services which will make the poor majority turn on them.

    Well, he actually doesn’t need your votes to secure his second tenure. You are all going to be more proactive than coming here to whine all the time . The good and equitable governance you seek cost more than noise. In any case enjoy your country !
