The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the Niger Delta Peace Initiative by the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, is another hidden device to test the waters for his political ambition in 2019.

Dismissing the purported Peace Initiative as a ruse, the State Chairman of the PDP, Bro Felix Obuah, in a statement, described the forum as an assemblage of All Progressives Congress (APC) members put together to try to see if Amaechi’s huge credibility problem could be redeemed.
Bro. Obuah said it’s laughable that Amaechi, who is central to the feelings of discontent in the state as a result of his eight years of misrule characterised by massive looting, sale of state property and indicted by the Rivers State Judicial Commission of Inquiry, is talking of peace rather than show remorse and return the loot back to the state.
The state PDP Chairman noted: “The people of Niger Delta whom Amaechi has grossly betrayed can never be deceived again and need not be told that the purported Peace Initiative is true to speculations, the mechanism Amaechi hopes to use to actualise his 2019 political ambition.
“Though, he is day-dreaming, we are however, shocked that Amaechi, who has shamelessly brought so much insult to the people of Niger Delta, playing a major role in pushing out the son of the Niger Delta as the President of this country, in preference to his new found love, and killer of his kinsmen (no thanks to the military invasion of Rivers State, will against all odds be nursing the ambition to launch a come back to the region after inflicting so much pains and agony on the people.
“How can one be calling for peace and meeting for peace outside his fatherland and behind the people for whom the peace is meant?
“Amaechi and by extension, the APC should come off this childish trick because the end of the ill-conceived plot is already known.
“While we are not averse to peace in our land, we believe such pretentious peace agents, such enemies of our people yesterday and apparently unrepentant enemies of today should show demonstrable repentance, return the loot taken from our collective treasury, dissociate themselves from those out there to annihilate our people because of our God-given resource and be willing and ready to key into the peace efforts of the State governments in the Niger Delta,” Obuah declared.
