The Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, has lost his elder brother, Dede Amaechi.
This was revealed in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in a statement on Saturday.
Shehu quoted Buhari as having said in the statement: “In this moment of grief, our thoughts and prayers are with the Amaechi family and people of Rivers State.”
