The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to demand the resignation of the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
In a statement on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the main opposition party accused Amaechi of using government funds to campaign for the President.
The party stated that the actions of Amaechi, who is the Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, demonstrates the height of corruption.
The statement reads: “The party says Amaechi, as Minister of Transportation and Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation is using government funds to campaign for Buhari.
“The PDP notes that this action of Amaechi demonstrates the height of corruption both in Buhari administration and the person of his campaign DG.”
The party wondered how Amaechi would compare Buhari to the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who it claimed had been generally accepted as the next President of Nigeria.
The PDP advised Amaechi to prepare to return to Rivers State instead of trying to promote what it called a failed candidate.
