There are insinuations that Abe said Amaechi’s conducts can cost APC a lot in the 2019 general elections. Abe also accused the minister of running a one-man show.
Abe said: “My grievances with the transportation minister has nothing to do with him supporting me or not. I have told him clearly that he is free to support who he wants. My disagreement with him is that he said I should not run, and I said I would run.
