Ovation publisher and media mogul, Dele Momodu has revealed that he spoke with Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi about their emergency meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday.

Momodu, writing on his Twitter page late on Sunday, admitted that he had a video call with the former Rivers Governor, to confirm the visit and also ask about Buhari’s wellbeing.
What Amaechi told me about APC leaders’ emergency meeting with Buhari – Dele Momodu
He wrote: “The Biblical Thomas could easily have been a Nigerian as we doubt everything; just had a video call with ROTIMI AMAECHI in London.
“ROTIMI AMAECHI has confirmed to me in a video call minutes ago that he and other APC Chieftains indeed met with President Buhari this noon.
“The video call became necessary when I got strident calls from those doubting the authenticity of the media release from FEMI ADESINA.”
Reacting to a user who asked him what Amaechi told him, Momodu tweeted: “The President is in great spirit. Nothing different from what the Acting President told Nigerians after a similar visit.
“I didn’t start this job today… My source is solid and impeccable; Amaechi won’t confirm if untrue, he will keep mute!”
