Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, has denied ever referring to the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomole, as bad luck to the ruling party.
In a chat with State House correspondents on Wednesday, July 25, the minister referred to the report as a fake story, Vanguard reports.
NAIJ.com gathers that Amaechi disclosed that he had seen the report on social media; but insited that he never made such a statement.
He said: “How do you know it is true? I saw in social media this afternoon where they said I said the chairman is a bad luck. I never said so. I have never said such a thing. They quoted me that I was attacking the chairman.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi, was described as the poorest high profile political office holder in Nigeria by one of his close associates, Kingsley Wali.
Wali, when moderating a lecture on the pains and gains of leadership in honour of MKO Abiola, said Amaechi shared something in common with the late democrat.
He stated that the minister took all the pain for public interest and that was the reason why he is the poorest political officeholder in Nigeria.
