Resign now! PDP Demands as Transport minister Rotimi Amaechi appointed as director general of 2019 campaign for Buhari.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded that transport minister Rotimi Amaechi resign his portfolio as he was said to have been appointed director-general of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term ‎campaign. 

In a statement issued by the party, PDP also accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of being insensitive to the plight of Nigerians. 

“If the APC has any strand of dignity, then Amaechi must resign as the Minister of Transportation having been appointed and already functioning as the DG of President Buhari’s Campaign. 

“Under the constitution of Nigeria, Mr.  Amaechi cannot combine the job of a minister of the Federal Republic with another responsibility such as the DG of a campaign organization. 

“Amaechi’s action in accepting the job while still holding office as minister is in clear breach of the oath of office and the oath ofallegiance which he swore in line with the provisions of the 1999 Constitution. “He should therefore resign his office as minister with immediate effect,” 

Ologbondiyan also went down memory lane explaining how a serving Minister of Works, Chief Tony Anenih resigned ‎after being appointed to head the Campaign Organisation of then President Olusegun Obasanjo, during the reign of ‎PDP. ‎
