Controversy laden Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has spoken out against the opposition party, PDP, stating that they only want power because they are broke and hungry.

The former Rivers state governor said this while at a political rally where 18 former PDP members who had defected were welcomed into the fold of the ruling party.

Amaechi who is currently under a cloud of controversy of his own over leaked tapes in which he allegedly criticised the President and damned the nation, said that if the PDP come back into power, it would simply be to steal and not support the people.

“They are broke, they are hungry and because they are broke, they are looking for cheap means of fund and we look at them when they say you are hungry,” he said.

“They have easily forgotten that they stole $2 billion US Dollars to prosecute 2015 election but we won. We listen to our colleagues at the other divide and say that you are hungry because they stole all the money meant for you.

“We want to assure you that we will not fail you and will never fail you. Bauchi is our traditional state we come to rest not to campaign.

“I was here in 2015 and saw what politicians called mammoth crowd, that is crowd that cannot be counted.”
