Former minister of transportation Rotimi Amaechi has revealed that delegates at his party’s presidential primary collected bribe to vote.
“When you pray, don’t just pray that God should save the country. Pray that God should save ordinary Nigerians because they are the problem,” Amaechi said at the birthday celebration of Port Harcourt-based cleric, Apostle Eugene Ogu, over the weekend.
“Those who voted at the APC primary, who were they? They were ordinary Nigerians. The small money they got solved their immediate problems
“If Nigeria’s problem is to be solved, the ordinary Nigerians must be at the forefront. Also, pray that ordinary Nigerians should choose the right president to govern the country.
“Please vote APC, but also pray that God may make you vote for the right candidate that will change Nigeria.”
The former Rivers State governor maintained that giving bribes would not solve Nigeria’s problem and that the public should shun moneybags and vote for right candidates.
“I believe that giving money is not the solution to Nigeria’s problem. The solution to Nigeria’s problem is that everyone must rise,” he said.
Amaechi contested the APC presidential primary. But Bola Tinubu won the election.
