Chairman of the Pacesetter Transport Company, Dare Adeleke has described the current minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi as a useless liar over his recent statement on former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Amaechi had on Sunday said the money left in the country’s coffers by former President Goodluck Jonathan was not sufficient enough to last for three weeks.

The minister had during a Channels Television programme, said President Muhammadu Buhari cleared some rots in the system when he came into power in 2015 and also diversified the economy.

He added that Buhari may not be a perfect leader, but the president loves Nigeria.

Reacting to the statement, the PDP Chieftain in Oyo state said Rotimi Amaechi is just a useless liar, who thinks he can get APC’s Vice Presidential slot by attacking former President Jonathan.

“2023 is near. The whole of Nigeria will soon see what Buhari will leave behind, apart from ₦40 trillion debt.”

According to Dare Adeleke, “This is exactly what Jonathan left behind on May 29, 2015, that Amaechi said could not sustain Nigeria for three weeks:

* Foreign reserve of $28.6 billion

* $2.2 billion in the Excess Crude Account

* $5.6 billion Nigeria Liquified Natural Gas Limited dividends

* Over $1 billion investments via the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority

“Amaechi begun life as Peter Odili’s houseboy and that inferiority complex has refused to leave. Sadly, he has a perpetual problem with self worth and Nigerians are cautioned not to take him seriously."

Adeleke advised Amaechi to learn from the Midas touches of GSM whose impact is felt across all zones in Oyo State and continue to transform lives, through quality leadership and Governance.

“Unlike Buhari whose 7 years in Aso Rock has brought Nigerians serious hardship, Engr. Seyi Makinde 2 years led administration has witnessed lot of construction of new roads, reconstruction of old ones.

“The administration also attended to social services, distribution of palliatives to the poor and vulnerable, quality healthcare, economy expansion, prudent management of state funds, increased reputational rating, creation of thousands of jobs, the attraction of more Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), mass relocation of people and businesses to Oyo State due to the business-friendly atmosphere and the inviting policies of Governor Seyi Makinde, increase participation in agro-businesses, clean and light up Oyo State, continued investments in the provision of security gadgets and equipment, for both conventional police and Amotekun Corps, and lots more.”

“Gov. Makinde is no doubt more useful in the Nation Building beyond being a governor in Oyo State because the future holds something more greater for Nigerians as his leadership prowess will one day be impacted on the citizens in general.”

He appealed to everyone to keep supporting him with prayers and physical support at all time while assuring that PDP will win 2023 election.
