On Monday, May 27, Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, turned 54. He had a birthday party that was attended by his wife, Judith, and his friends. See more photos below. But before the pictures, who’s Rotimi? He’s the minister of transport in Nigeria at the moment.
Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi (born 27 May 1965) is a Nigerian politician who served as the fifth Governor of Rivers State from 2007 to 2015. He was re-elected for a second term on 26 April 2011. Amaechi was a member of the People’s Democratic Party before defecting to the All Progressives Congress on 27 November 2013. He is now a serving Federal Minister of Transportation just like I have said earlier. He is also the director general of Buhari reelection campaign which succeeded.
He contested and won the People’s Democratic Party primary for Rivers State Governor in 2007. His name was substituted by the party, an action which he challenged in court. The case eventually got to the Supreme Court.
He became governor on October 26, 2007, after the Supreme Court ruled that he was the rightful candidate of the PDP and winner of the April 2007 Governorship election in Rivers State. He was reelected for a second term of four years in April 2011.
His administration invested in infrastructure development, construction of roads and bridges, sticking to the vision of connecting all parts of the state by road. The governor was also committed to urban renewal and modernization of transportation services. His administration began building a monorail to provide mass transportation within the city of Port Harcourt.
