Thank you for not converting me to Islam” – Rotimi Amaechi tells President Buhari

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi on Wednesday jokingly thanked President Buhari for not converting him to Islam, saying he has been attacked severally for associating with a President who many assumed was planning to Islamize Nigeria.

 

Amaechi said this at the valedictory Federal Executive Council meeting at the State House Abuja yesterday Wednesday, May 22nd.

 

The former Rivers state governor narrated how he was almost chased out of Christ the King Catholic Church in 2014 for supporting the president, who they alleged was trying to Islamise the country.

“Mr President, let me thank you for not converting me to Islam. I say that specifically because in 2014 when I walked into Christ the King Catholic Church, I was literally chased out of the church as a governor because I was accused of supporting a man whose agenda was to Islamise Nigeria.

And in Rivers state they began to call me `Alhaji Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi’. I thank you because they have dropped the `Alhaji’ and back to Mr Chibuike Amaechi,’’ he said.

 

Amaechi said some persons initially thought that the president would be an autocratic leader only for him to turn out to be an “extreme democrat’’.

“I was told in the course of the campaign that you were autocratic and therefore you would not be democratic. Most of us are not happy that you have moved from your autocratic nature to an extreme democrat that everything puts to test of the people, to the extent that the people now feel that the only way things can go on in this country is by the rule of law.

“We all know that the rule of law is the beginning and the end of this government. Talking about the financial impunity that we saw before, people were making money without having any productive capacity for that’’ he said

Butt licking skill seems to be a requirement in Buhari’s dictatorship regime. The country is in depression, very chaotic and in the worst shape ever. None of them are saying any logical things to move the country forward collectively. Just fighting one another, and being useless sycophants. And Nigerians have the audacity to say they are an independent country with democracy. Shame on you Buhari, osinbajo, Lai mohammed, and the rest of Nigerians who share the same mentality as them.

if he made u convert but u still provide dividends of democracy to ur people, it’s better but u didn’t convert yet u are worse than even a pagan. How many of ur people benefited from u as a minister ? How many federal developmental strides did u bring to ur state? Instead u stupidly and childishly kept fighting the present governor and disrupting the peace of ur state. Christianity or Islam won’t take to heaven, it’s your deeds and respect for Gods commandments that will take u to heaven. U and Buhari are d same cos u both are chronic vindictive undemocratic useless criminals.

Take note Rotimi Amaechi has not been attached severally but rather several. Severally means individually or on an individual basis. You can put it this way: the clothes were hung severally meaning the clothes were hung separately.

Anyone who believed that “Islamization” lie was either PDP or Igbo. Same people also believed the “Jubril of Sudan” lie. That you hate someone does not mean you loose your sense nah.

Why is he saying all these now? To implore another undeserved favor, and shamelessly so, from Mr. President? Amaechi, you’re being very childish.
