President Buhari reportedly reappoints Rotimi Amaechi as his campaign DG for 2019 election
President Buhari has reportedly reappointed former Rivers state governor now Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, as his campaign Director-General for the 2019 election, Thisday reports. Although he has not come out to declare his intentions to run for a second term, he has been giving hints that he might seek a second term in office.
Amaechi, who led Buhari’s campaign in 2015, has reportedly been issued a letter of appointment for next year’s election and would make an official announcement on his appointment anytime soon.
Twice last year, Buhari had hinted about the possiblity of him seeking a second term. First, he did so during a summit on counter-terrorism in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, and the second time last November, when he visited Kano State on a two-day working visit.
Amaechi is likely to hold a press briefing in the next few days to announce his reappointment as well as unveil the agenda for the Buhari 2019 project.
