He noted that Amaechi had boasted of funding the election of President Muhammadu Buhari, hence he should stay in government till he recoups all the money he spent on the election.
While noting that Amaechi is a cog in the wheel of progress, Obuah further stated that the Minister is known for tearing houses apart and setting brother against brother.
