Rivers State PDP Campaign Council says the endorsement of African
Action Congress (AAC) governorship candidate in Rivers State by the
Transport Minister Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is the height of
desperation, selfishness and an insult to the people of Rivers State.
“Worse still is his empty boasts that after installing a governor in
May, he would dissolve the Local Government Councils in June 2019, an
evidence that the Minister’s choice of AAC is purely to satisfy his
inordinate ambition and desires”
The Director of Information and Communications of the State PDP
Campaign Council Emma Okah made this disclosure today in a press
statement issued in Port Harcourt in response to the Minister’s
directive that his faction of the APC should vote AAC during the
governorship election in Rivers State.
According to the PDP, Rivers State is too big and sophisticated to be
led by a political kindergarten from a political party that is unknown
in the state and chosen by the Transport Minister to serve as his
stooge. It is even more irritating that the said candidate is an
adopted houseboy of the Minister and a candidate of a political party
that neither campaigned nor opened office in any part of the State.
Describing the actions of the Transport Minister as a joke taken too
far, the PDP advised the Minister to try another trick as the present
one is dead on arrival.
The PDP further advised the Minister to cut his desperation to
overwhelm Rivers State, learn from history and save himself from
“Desperation caused the crisis in the APC, desperation robbed the APC
of reconciliation and today, desperation has caused a former governor
to beg a candidate who did not print posters let alone campaign in
Rivers State to present himself for forceful installation as governor
of Rivers State” Okah said, pointing out that the Minister cannot do a
third term by proxy no matter how he schemes and pretends.
Rivers people are not ready to allow the Transport Minister to return
to the Brick House through the back door.
