Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State has publicly made known his resolve to support the presidential ambition of Maj-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), in his chase for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives’ Congress, APC.
Amaechi, who declared his support for Buhari on Tuesday evening when the presidential aspirant paid him a visit at the Government House, Port Harcourt, expressed his satisfaction with Buhari for having a solution to corruption which he described as the core of problems of the nation.
The Governor, who went on to say he would support the former head of state in his aspiration, regretted that most Nigerians had been accusing Buhari of tribalism and also of being a religious bigot.
Hear him, “The problem that you have in politics, which I have come to observe, is that those who managed your image in the past did not manage it properly. They allowed them erroneous label of you being a religious bigot to stick. Let me take myself for example, if you accuse me once, I accuse you 20 times and then go to the media to tell them my own side of the story.
