The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State has rubbished the defense of former Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaech’s ministerial nomination by the All Progressives Congress in the state as baseless.
The Rivers PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah, said the APC’s attempt to protect the embattled former Governor amounts to glorifying corruption.
We had earlier reported that the Rivers APC chairman, Dr. Davies Ikanya, described Amaechi as the best choice for ministerial appointment from the state, adding that he will be an asset as a minister, to the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
But Obuah in response to the statement by Ikanya, said with the historic woeful defeat of the APC in the State, which it ran to total bankruptcy and near collapse notwithstanding the huge internally generated revenue and accruements from the federal allocations, it is commonsense to fathom why they insist in remaining in office to cover up their loots.
“Failure to do so explains why the APC in the State and those strangers who assisted in the looting spree, are wrapped in total confusion that is ravaging the party, leaving their members disorientated as being expressed in hollow press statements and ranting.
“Amaechi wouldn’t in anyway be an asset to President Muhammadu Buhari and lacks the integrity and morality to speak for Rivers people”, Obuah revealed.
According to the State Chairman of the PDP, Amaechi’s record of betrayal is evident and available and need not be repeated that he cannot in anyway be an asset to President Buhari.
