Rotimi Amaechi, the former minister of transportation under the immediate past administration of Muhammadu Buhari, has opened up on the challenges confronting him after leaving politics to pursue certificates in law.
Amaechi, a two-term governor of Rivers state, said he failed two of the five courses he took at the Nigerian law school.
He said he was admitted to the King’s College in London for his master’s degree in law when he had already been offered admission to the Nigerian law school.
Amaechi speaks on life outside of politics
The former minister also said he was doing another first degree in law at the University of London.
“I did my last exam last year in October, and you will be shocked that I failed two courses. Out of five, I failed two. Because I was combining Nigerian law school, I was doing a master in law, corporate and company law, and then I was doing an LLB programme at the university of London.”
Recall that Amaechi contested for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential ticket ahead of the 2023 general election but lost to President Bola Tinubu.
He had been a tactical critic of the president, a development that has sparked rumours that he was not fully part of the APC.

Tinubu’s aide tackles Buhari’s minister Amaechi
Legit.ng earlier reported that Tinubu’s aide, Hadiza Bala Usman, called Amaechi a liar.
Usman, the MD of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), an agency directly under Amaechi’s ministry, accused the ex-minister of being the brain behind her removal in her memoir.
The former minister claimed that Usman did not tell everything that happened in her memoir, but the ex-NPA chairman said Amaechi was yet to stay away from telling lies.
