The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has said he is not a supporter of Abdullahi Adamu, but of any consensus candidate at the ongoing All Progressive Congress (APC) Convention.

Adamu is the choice of President Muhammadu Buhari for the chairmanship position.

The decision of Buhari to back Adamu had created rift in the ruling party, but the president was able to call the party’s stakeholders together.

Shortly before the convention kicked off, six chairmanship aspirants stepped down for Adamu, who is set to emerge, according to feelers.

Commenting on this, Senator Sani Musa, one of the Chairmanship aspirants, said it was difficult pulling out of the race.

But speaking with Channels Television at Eagle Square, Abuja, venue of the convention, Amaechi said, “The new Chairman that emerges will continue to see how he will strengthen the party to an election.

“I’m not a supporter of Abdullahi Adamu, I’m a supporter of the consensus. You know one mistake everybody is making. Just because nobody saw me in front of any candidate. Nobody can tell you today that I’m behind any candidate.”
