Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has broken silence on the speculations that President Muhammadu Buhari and former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu had a pact on the 2023 presidency.
There is a rumour that after Tinubu was dropped as All Progressives Congress (APC) vice presidential candidate, a deal on 2023 was agreed with Buhari.
The rumour claimed that Tinubu and conceded the selection of Buhari’s running mate to him..
Before the 2019 polls, the President rumoured to have re-assured the Jagaban of Borgu of the ticket.
In an interview with Daily Trust, Amaechi stated that he was not privy to details of the alleged agreement.
The former Rivers Governor said he was not sure if Buhari and Tinubu held such a private meeting.
He added that as the Director-General of APC Campaign Organisation, he never witnessed such a decision.
“But if there was a private meeting between President Buhari and our leader, Tinubu, I wouldn’t know.
“If it was a public APC meeting and I was not there, then something must be wrong. I was not told that there was an agreement that power should be handed over to Tinubu”, Amaechi added.
