According to reports, Tambuwal will be returning to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to fulfil his ambition of becoming Nigeria’s President in 2019.
Speaking on Tambuwal dumping APC, Amaechi noted that it is expected as the governor has the ambition to be president.
He also said plans by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara to defect from APC is no surprise to the party as he is expected to leave.
However, Amaechi noted that the governor’s defection would not affect Buhari’s chances of winning in 2019.
Speaking with journalists after inspecting sections of the Itakpe-Warri rail line on Friday, Amaechi said, “No matter what you do, the governor of Sokoto will leave naturally. He has the ambition to be president. If you take a chicken to him, he will still go, right?
“The same with Kwara, these are people you expect that they will leave. Ok, they left with some members of House Reps and Senate, where did they come from? They are from areas the president is comfortable.”
