ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is totally enmeshed in crisis,
over the verbal attack on the personality of the former Governor of
Rivers State and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
APC in Rivers State, on Sunday, took a swipe at senior members of the
party, for allegedly attacking Amaechi and the leadership of the party.
was part of a statement by the State Chairman of the party, Davies
Ikanya, which was made available to Newsmen, in Port Harcourt.
recalls that recently, Amaechi has been severely attacked and
criticised towards the build up of the 2019 elections.
Some senior party members accused Amaechi of hijacking the machinery of the party in Rivers State, ahead of 2019.
the APC said that the silence of Amaechi and the leadership of the
party over the attacks, should not be mistaken for weakness.
class of leaders in their quest for political relevance, have not
ceased on a daily basis to disparage the person and personality of Rt.
Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, erstwhile Governor of Rivers State and
incumbent Minister of Transportation, and the undisputed Leader of our
party in the State.
the party leadership decides to keep calm and quiet all these while,
should not be misconstrued as a sign of weakness, to warrant these
ceaseless attacks on our party Leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi,
whose single mission is to build a virile, vibrant, cohesive, united
chapter of the party, capable of salvaging the State from the hands of
undemocratic elements currently pervading and exhibiting all manners of
bad governance inimical to the growth and prosperity of our dear State.
much as we will not discourage or hinder any member of our great party
from exercising their powers of freedom of speech, association, or
movement, but such speeches, movements or associations, should not
result to stunted growth of our party, both at the State and National
us for once warn and caution those concerned, not only to call
themselves to order, but direct their subordinates and supporters to
understand the limits they can be used to run down our party, or bring
down all the efforts we have collectively put in building this party to
what it is today”, the party said.
