Amaechi Begs Atiku, PDP To Work With Buhari

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to work with President Muhammadu Buhari after the contentious 2019 presidential election.

Atiku lost the February 23 election to Buhari by 3.9 million votes, but has rejected the result and is set to contest it in court.
While addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, Amaechi said the opposition party should work with the ruling party.
However, the former Rivers governor also said the party is ready to fight any legal action instituted by the opposition party and its candidate, a former vice president.
"I told my colleagues that it is only those who fail elections that gather for meetings, while the winners just gather to pop champagne and drink to their victory.
"We are celebrating but we are conscious of the fact that we want to repeat what Gowon said in 1970, 'No victor, no vanquished'.
"We enjoin our colleagues in the PDP to join us in ensuring that Nigerians benefit from good governance.
"We believe they are our colleagues and friends, but if they don't see reason, I think we also have lawyers."
The minister also promised that President Buhari will run an inclusive government that'll ensure no one feels left out, like the president promised in his acceptance speech.
"Not only will Buhari run an all-inclusive government, but he is also guided by the fact that Nigerians have suffered enough. The president will ensure we run a government that satisfies Nigerians.
"Election is over and we are no longer discussing corruption but want to implement the policies that will ensure that the money that belongs to Nigeria is kept for Nigeria alone.
"The cardinal point that the president has continuously focused on is the fight against corruption and the need not just to rehabilitate the economy but also to make it grow," he said.
