Wife of Nigeria’s President, Aisha Buhari has paid a visit to Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
The visit she explained is to congratulate him on his recent turbaning as the Dan Amanar Daura (The Trustworthy Son of Daura).
The first lady made the disclosure through her Facebook post this morning.
According to Mrs. Buhari:
“I was received by the Hon. Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi and his dear wife, Dame Judith when I paid them congratulatory visit for his coronation as the Dan Amana of Daura by the Daura Emirate council recently.”
This development is eliciting wide reactions among Nigerians, most of whom believe Mr. Amaechi appears to be Buhari’s favourite successor.
Mr. Amaechi, a former Governor of Rivers State from 2007 to 2015, was once Chairman of Nigeria’s Governors Forum. Prior to then, he was two term Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly and Chairman of Nigerian Speakers Forum.
The two term Minister of Transportation whose ministry has transformed the transportation sector of the country, is also a two term Director General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation.
Mr. Amaechi’s possible candidacy for the Presidency of Nigeria appears to have huge connections with most Nigerians on account of his pro-people policies and governance legacy.
