Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, may be dropped by President Muhammadu Buhari if he fails to stop the Rivers State chapter of the ruing All Progressives Congress (APC) “from embarrassing APC Nigeria”.

APC Lagos chieftain, Engr. Joe Igbokwe, gave the warning on Monday while voicing out his frustration on the endless wars in Rivers APC which have seriously weakened the party in the state while also currently posing a danger to it at the national level.     

Igbokwe, who is the Special Adviser for Drainage and Water Resources to Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, drew the ire of Amaechi loyalists when he wrote on his Facebook wall: “HON MINISTER ROTIMI AMAECHI SHOULD GO HOME AND STOP THESE ‘APC’ BOYS AND GIRLS IN RIVERS STATE FROM EMBARRASSING APC NIGERIA. RIVERS STATE IS BEING RULED BY PDP AND THAT IN ITSELF IS ANOTHER EMBARRASSMENT. WE CANNOT TAKE THIS SHIT ANY LONGER.”

Responding to the barrage of attacks from Amaechi’s loyalists, Igbokwe said: “He (Amaechi) may be compelled to drop his position if he cannot call you fake APC members to order even when you could not deliver a single Counselor in that due selfish sense of superiority and imposing some fake and inordinate power you do not have.

“It is this kind of political stupidity that led Wike to dislodge you fake Buharists in Rivers. Meaningless bravado, selfishness, self importance, hustling tendencies with nothing to put on the table is the real problem. Too much noise from Rivers.”

News Express reports that leadership crisis is rocking APC at the national level following the suspension of the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and the failure of feuding Rivers APC chieftains to agree of who among them is the rightful Acting National Chairman of the party. The party is contending with multiple lawsuits as a result of the power tussle, which may negatively impact its fortunes in the forthcoming Edo State governorship election.x
