Chairman of the Rivers State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Felix Amaechi Obuah, has accused former governor of Lagos State and one of the national leaders of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, of being responsible for the political crisis in the state.
The Rivers PDP chairman alleged that the major contracting firms handling various projects in the state are owned by Tinubu, adding that the only way the APC leader could sustain his business interest and retain his grip on the soul of the state was to continue to hoodwink Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and stoke the flames of crisis in the state.
Obuah in a statement issued yesterday, signed by his media aide, Jerry Needam, said: “Rivers State remains only one out of all the PDP controlled states in the country, and cannot alone give the APC the votes required to form the central government without a corresponding support from others. This clearly shows that there are other reasons for the special attention of the APC national leadership in Rivers State.
“And to complement this vicious desire, they have found a willing tool in Governor Amaechi, who too is being propelled by an inordinate political ambition to play the prodigal son needed by these gold diggers to achieve their aim.
“This is the more reason why all Rivers people must not let go by rejecting them and their antics. We are a peaceful people who must not be involved in any act capable of taking the life of another and will continue to see the lives of others as sacrosanct”.
