The Chairman, Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro Felix Obuah, says there is no truth in Mr. Rotimi Ameachi’s statement describing the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, as a threat to democracy in the country.
The PDP Chairman said in a statement issued Tuesday in Port Harcourt that former Governor Amaechi “is only struggling to divert attention from his abominable atrocities, rebellious activities and breach of public peace and security in the State and the nation at large. He said that it is he Amaechi that has become a threat to democracy and peace in the country.
Obuah in the statement signed by his spokesman Jerry Needam expressed disappointment that rather than help President Muhammadu Buhari to proffer solution to the numerous problems on his head, particularly the deteriorating economic situation and apparent lack of focus of the APC-led government in the country, Mr. Amaechi is busy blackmailing a focused and development-sensitive Governor (Wike), and causing trouble in Rivers State.
Bro Obuah described Amaechi’s statement as “undoubtedly a cover-up, distraction and attempt to subvert the truth about who he is and what his activities in the state portend.” He recalled how Amaechi “flooded the state during the re-run elections with soldiers to rig the election, kill innocent voters and intimidate the citizens while exercising their franchise.”
According to Obuah, “Rather than admitting his failure as a governor for eight years and ill-preparedness for his new office as Minister for Transportation, Mr. Amaechi has resorted to pulling down the good foundation of the Wike administration, a mission and task he cannot accomplish.”
Bro Obuah advised Amaechi to settle down for business as a minister and allow the peace in Rivers State to be, reiterating his earlier appeal to President Buhari “to call him (Amaechi) to order, before he completely destroys the already rough image of his government.”
The Rivers PDP Chairman also urged the people “to ignore Amaechi’s lies and deceitful claims,” adding that “nothing good and meaningful can ever come from Amaechi who failed as a governor, and APC leader in the state, as he could not deliver his party at the polls, failing even in his polling unit.”
