The 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.
The 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.
This was part of a statement by the State Chairman of the party, Davies Ikanya, which was made available to Newsmen, in Port Harcourt.
Post-Nigeria 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.

Reacting, the APC said that the silence of Amaechi and the leadership of the party over the attacks, should not be mistaken for weakness. 

“This 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.
“That 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.
“As 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 levels.

“Let 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.
