What I admire about Buhari – Amaechi


Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has told of his admiration for President Muhammadu Buhari.

The former Rivers State governor disclosed this in an interview wherein he said he wished he could be like the President in terms of discipline.

“I admire the discipline of Muhammadu Buhari. I wish I was that disciplined. People think it is easy to be disciplined but it’s not. If you want to know what discipline is, try to stay hungry for one month. I’m not talking about fasting.  Or imagine someone craving chocolate (or any other thing) and not taking it, even if it is right in front of you.

“President, (Major General) Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) is so disciplined that he is able to resist temptation to reply his critics when they abuse him,” he told Punchng.com.

The minister also made comparison between the President and ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, saying both loved the country fiercely but with variation: “Also, I admire his (Buhari) love for the country. That trait can also be found in (former President Olusegun) Obasanjo. They have fierce love for the country. However, the difference between both men is that Obasanjo thinks his idea of growth for the country is better than anybody else’s own. But there can always be alternatives. And maybe Buhari’s own could be another one.”
