Speaking, the spokesman of NEF, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, tsaid Buhari does not care who runs the country, lampooning the former minister, Rotimi Amaechi for abandoning his duty in search of presidential ticket.
In a tweet, the NEF, he lamented that the immediate past Minister of Transportation, Amaechi, left a stalled train service while opting to run for the Presidency.
According to him, Amaechi failed to ensure the release of train passengers from kidnappers before opting to run for the Presidency.
According to Baba-Ahmed: “Ngige was going to leave the ASUU strike and students at home to run for the Presidency of Nigeria.
“Rotimi Amaechi left a stalled train service and passengers with kidnappers to ask us to make him President of Nigeria. President Buhari does not care who runs a country in a mess.”
