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 endless embarrassment.
“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 return to the Brick House through the back door.
