- Says he was informed that he would be reappointed after the last cabinet was dissolved.
Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation, says he was told by President Muhammadu Buhari that he would be reappointed.
Amaechi, a former governor of Rivers State, disclosed this on Wednesday while speaking at his swearing-in reception.
The minister said Buhari had disclosed this to him the same week the last cabinet was dissolved.
According to him,
“The President told me the same week cabinet was dissolved that I will return you to the cabinet.
“I kept it a secret but I could have announced to you. So all those who were running helter-skelter, we knew that God would not allow them to have their way”.
Speaking further, Amaechi pledged to ensure that ministry performs optimally to please the President and Nigerians at large.
“We are grateful to God for the opportunity to serve again. I know how many of you were frightened that we would not get the appointment.”
