Former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi gave his speech at The RED Summit Gala night celebration stating the roles Adebola Williams and Chude Jideonwo played in the last presidential campaign which led to the election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said, “I thank Adebola Williams & Chude Jideonwo for taking that responsibility of handling the presidential campaign. They sold our candidate to Nigerians against popular opinion. They got President Muhammadu Buhari to wear a suit, something he hadn’t done for over thirty years and that was one of the biggest highlights of the campaign. Those images broke barriers and sold the man.”
He continued, “We always say God won the election but their role can’t be overemphasized. They created an impression that we had money, made the other people afraid and think we could match them money for money but we really couldn’t. It was their creativity. I thank them and wish them the very best.”
