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.
We reported a few weeks ago that Amaechi had already made plans to flee into exile in the event of a Goodluck Jonathan win. He was expecting to feel the full force of an Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) prosecution.
Now he can look forward to a lucrative ministerial portfolio in the incoming Buhahari adminstration.
