Amaechi says Igbos should “seek forgiveness” for not Voting Buhari in 2015



Amaechi says Igbos should "seek forgiveness" for not Voting Buhari in 2015 - BellaNaija

Rotimi Amaechi

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has chastised Igbos for not voting President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, The Cable reports.

Speaking on the topic “The Igbo in the politics of Nigeria” at the 12th convocation of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, Amaechi said Buhari has done more for Igbo people in 2 years than the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 16.

Amaechi asked that Igbos vote Buhari for a second term in 2019, so that they may rule the country after he is gone. He said:

You (Igbo) did not vote for Buhari, true or false? You voted for PDP and what did they do for you? PDP abandoned the Enugu-Onitsha expressway since 1999, but Buhari is working on it, true or false?” he asked.

Buhari is working on the second Niger Bridge, he is working on the Otuocha-Ibaji-Abuja road, he is working on the Abakaliki-Onueke road, he is working on the Oji-Achi-Naku road in Enugu state, he is also working on Ozalla-Akpugo-Amagunze road. He is working on the Aba-Ikot Ekpene road.

Under Buhari, all major cities of the south-east are captured in the existing railway project. Name one government that has done up to this within two years. Our problem is that we are just being emotional.

Igbo should go for confession, seek forgiveness and move into a national party, and look for way to fight from inside.

They should vote for Buhari for a second term, and then force him out and look for Igbo president. Let the quarrel with the North, real or imagined, stop now.

    Dear Mnister of Transportation.,
    Kindly read Strive Masiyiwa’s FaceBook post on Tribalusm as the worst kind of corruption.

    Thank God your wife is Igbo and from Anambra State. Let her start the confession and asking of forgiveness first Your children are also half Igbo! They should lead the procession of choir boys for confession and forgiveness.

      Well said kkay. But Amaechi is full-blooded Igbo, and so should lead the confession and forgiveness procession.

    Well, Mr. Amaechi’s suggestion is undemocratic to put it mildly. Actually, it is unconstitutional and illegal to ask anyone to apologise to a person for not voting for him or her.

    Is that why you’re standing like someone that has forgotten himself? What am I saying?… You really have forgotten yourself

      Amaechi is Igbo too.
      That he speaks Ikwere dialet does not make him non Igbo!
      Igbos are blessed with multiple dialets!

    This Criminal that had amassed a vast quantity of Dollars in American Banks,has the guts to insult the Mighty Igbos.
    Why don’t he shut-up his mouth and look for a ‘tooth brush’.
    U r 100% an Igbo man,why don’t u respect ur origin.
    Ur Ancestors will be crying from the grave.
    Pride and belonging is the first steps to existence.
    Came down Mr. Campaigner and apologise to ur brethren,for ur foolish utterences.
    May God help us evil dooerss,
