Rotimi Amaechi celebrates not going into exile

Rivers State governor Rotimi Amaechi of the APC and former minister and APC candidate for Kaduna State governor Nasir El-Rufai were reported to have flown into Port Harcourt from Abuja together following the victory of their man Buhahari in the presidential (s)elections.

Amaechi danced away at the airport for a long spell, before driving off in a convoy of cars full of supporters in celebratory mood, in which he dispensed with protocol and drove one of the cars himself.

Now he can look forward to a lucrative ministerial portfolio in the incoming Buhahari adminstration.
