The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has disclosed that he left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) because he wanted change.
He stated this during the Future Awards Africa which held at the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos.
The former Rivers state governor said he could have stayed in the PDP but he chose to pitch his tent with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Amaechi said: “I moved from PDP to APC because I am tired of what is happening in the party, I have the option to stay because of my position as the chairman of the Governors then.
“I can use my position to fight them (PDP) and get what I want because I believed Nigeria was not going in the right direction by then.
“My attention and belief shifted to Buhari which was the viable alternative, I believe in the change mantra because it is the only way to improve on what is on ground.
“He has not disappointed because the economy is now back on track and is growing. This is evident in the current prices of food items because it’s getting lower.”
