Director General of the Buhari Campaign Organization and Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi has boasted about the chances of the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.) at the 2015 presidential election.
Speaking at an interactive a session recently, Amaechi explained what gave him the assurance that Buhari will win in 2015.
“The simple electoral arithmetic is that before the president had the South-south and Southeast 100 percent, but now there are problems for the PDP in Cross Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, Rivers, Bayelsa and Delta States. It wasn’t like that before.
“By this time the PDP would have been dancing but have you seen them doing so? When they were doing the Transformation Ambassador of Nigeria (TAN) rallies, I knew that it will get to this point.
“You have not seen the PDP dancing or doing any major campaign because there are problems everywhere. There is problem within the party in Enugu, Ebonyi and Abia States. So, it is no longer the same. The electoral map appears to have changed.
“If we go to the north, does the APC have problems in Kano, Kaduna, Jigawa and Sokoto? Did we have problem in Lagos State?
“No, it is the PDP that has problems in those states. So the political map has changed and that is why I believe that by God’s grace, Buhari and the APC will win. I am a Christian and I think positively,” he said.
Amaechi further said he does not believe in indigeneship but citizenship.
“I am not from the north; I am not from the south. I am a Nigerian. I don’t believe in indigeneship, but in citizenship. Buhari will win the 2015 presidential election by God’s grace and he will also win because the political map does not favour the president anymore.
“In 2011, in the South-South and Southeast, we said he is our brother and now we are saying he is no longer our brother,” Amaechi said.
