pdp-members-defect-to-apc-600x400Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says it’s now crystal clear to all Rivers people and Nigerians that the immediate past governor of the state, Chibuike Amaechi, is the source of the insecurity in some parts of the state.
The state PDP chairman, Felix Obuah reacting to the avalanche of threats and unguarded utterances of the Minister of Transport, Amaechi, in a radio programme yesterday, asserted that the former governor has unmasked himself as the sole sponsor of the skirmishes in parts of the state, stressing that none is left in doubt as to who is responsible for the insecurity in the state.
According to the state PDP boss, the party is now vindicated of the alarm raised over the plot by the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Nigerian military to unleash mayhem on Rivers people during the re-run election next Saturday.
Obuah noted with disdain the open acceptance and declaration by Amaechi, that he would personally lead the battle on the re-run election day and dared anybody, including the state governor, to file out with his own gunmen.
“Still bragging of his military back-up, Amaechi said the type of army presence in the state on that election day will be such that had never been witnessed in the state before.
“Having failed in all these evil plans, Amaechi has personally come home with his paid troops and heavily armed soldiers to shoot at sight anybody seen or believed not to be ready to do his bidding during the election,” Obuah said noting that even the INEC officials, security operatives are not safe from Ameachi’s threat.
Obuah regretted that “Rotimi Amaechi, a serving Minister for transportation, a former speaker of the State House of Assembly and immediate past state governor is conducting himself in such uncivil, irresponsible, militant and illiterate manner as to be using vulgar and dishonourable language on air to respond to questions that border on how he ran the state aground while serving as governor in the state that made Rivers people reject him and all he stands for.”
“The fire-and-brimstone threatened by Amaechi is mere face-saving and a way of forcing himself back to the people and region he has ungraciously betrayed over a pot of yam porridge.
“We also wish to apologise to the police and other security agencies in the state over Amaechi’s castigations and aspersions and enjoin them to continue to do their work most patriotically and godly.
“Amaechi’s arrogation of sweeping powers and the federal government might is only but a ruse for he has no capacity to twist the arms of better informed Rivers people and other Nigerians to impose his surrogate acolytes on our people.
“Rivers people must not go back to Egypt and Amaechi as far as we are concerned and whatever he stands for, are gone forever.
As long as the re-run elections are free and fair, the PDP will still be on top of the heap. We watch and pray”, the State PDP boss declared.
