The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has joined the ranks of northern leaders who think that the former Governor of Rivers State and current Minister of Transportation has qualities that may prove useful to Nigeria.
Incidentally, El-Rufai is the second person from Nigeria’s Sahel region to express admiration and support for the leadership style of the South Southerner.
On the 27th of May, the President, Muhammadu Buhari had said he hoped God would take Amaechi to higher glory, saying his quest to improve lives and his sense of patriotism were remarkable.
El-Rufai  said in a letter to Amaechi on the occasion of his birthday that his inclusive style as well as his vision are qualities which are endearing him to the Nigerian people.
“Amaechi’s key leadership quality is his sense of inclusion, he likes to bring everyone on board, he loves teamwork, he empowers people to put in their best, he doesn’t pretend to know it all or try to do everything.
“He is one of the few politicians from the Niger Delta that is Pan Nigeria. I think in the history of Nigeria there hasn’t been any Minister of Transportation that has been able to achieve the landmark Amaechi has achieved in very difficult circumstances.
El-Rufai spoke of the intimate relation he shares with Amaechi:
“I am very proud of you, am very proud to be associated with you, I am a beneficiary of your friendship, your love and your generosity.
“You have helped me a lot in my campaign, you have raised money for me, you have given me ideas on how to be a better politician and I have learned a lot from you.
“I am confident that if and when Nigeria is looking for a leader that will take us to a higher level, you will be up there on the frontline among those that will be counted”
speaks on relationship between Amaechi
The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has spoken on the relationship bond that exists between President Muhammadu Buhari and his Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
On Amaechi’s relationship with the President, the Governor of Kaduna State remarked,  “President Buhari loves Amaechi like a son, he trusts him absolutely, which is why in spite of all opposition, many attempts to put Amaechi in bad light, he twice selected him to lead his campaign and also as the Minister of Transportation.
