Amaechi is deceptive, APC chieftain blasts ex-Minister 

Civil societies demand probe of Amaechi’s $195m maritime security contract
Rotimi Amaechi

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Niger State, Jonathan Vatsa has accused former Minister of Transportation and presidential aspirant, Rotimi Amaechi of being deceptive, especially with regards to the Baro port located in the state. 

Vatsa told journalists in Minna on Friday that the guilt and sins of Baro port are chasing Amaechi, which is why he sneaked into Niger State to meet with delegates in the night.

The chieftain said if people had known of his coming into Niger State to campaign, a protest would have been organized against him for deceiving President Buhari to commission Baro port when he knew it was not completed.

Vatsa, a former Publicity Secretary of the Niger APC said, “Why didn’t he come in the broad daylight where we can see him. We had arranged to protest against him and he knew it.”

“I thought they brought President Muhammadu Buhari to commission the Baro port, so which port is he talking about again? He is telling lies, we don’t believe him. 

“He deceived Buhari to commission Baro port when he knew it was uncompleted. That is why the Governor of Sokoto State Aminu Tambuwal said a few days ago that Buhari and the APC-led government did Niger state 419 on the port.

“Don’t believe in Amaechi, someone who can deceive a whole Buhari to commission an uncompleted warehouse in Baro can deceive anybody. Do you know that Amaechi left Minna airport around 8pm? His sins are unforgivable. He should forget his presidential ambition.

“He can fool some people sometimes, but he can’t fool all the people all the time. If he is honest and confident in himself, why did he sneak and come in at night to see delegates?

“Anyway, even if he came at night, there is no single vote for him from Niger delegates. He should fix Baro port and rail line before anything because they promised us railway line from Minna to Abuja, till today that has not seen the light of day,” Vatsa said.
