The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday, described a statement made by the Minister of Transportation which alleged that Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, is a threat to democracy in the country as untrue and false, stating that Amaechi is only struggling to divert attention from his abominable atrocities.
This was contained in a statement signed by Jerry Needam, the Special Adviser on Media to the Chairman of the state PDP, Bro Felix Obuah.
The PDP Chairman noted that Amaechi, who was a former governor of the state, was only trying to distract Nigerians from his rebellious activities and breach of public peace and security in the State and the nation at large, stressing that it is he (Amaechi) that has become a threat to democracy and peace in the country.
The Party expressed disappointment that rather than help President Muhammadu Buhari proffer solution to the numerous problems besetting the country, Amaechi was busy blackmailing a focused and development-sensitive Governor (Wike).
Bro Obuah emphasized that Amaechi’s statement was undoubtedly a cover- up, distraction and attempt to subvert the truth about who he is and what his activities in the State portend, recalling how Amaechi flooded the State during the re-run elections with soldiers to rig the election, kill innocent voters and intimidate the citizens while exercising their franchise.
He said, “Rather than admitting his failure as a governor for eight years and ill- preparedness for his new office as Minister for Transportation, Mr. Amaechi has resorted to pulling down the good foundation of the Wike administration, a mission and task he cannot accomplish.
“Bro Obuah is therefore calling on the former governor to settle down for business as a minister and allow the peace in Rivers State to be.”
The PDP, further urged the Rivers people to ignore Amaechi’s lies and deceitful claims.
