Amaechi’s Kinsmen dump APC, declare Support for Wike and PDP

Over 100 members of the All Progres­sives Congress (APC), in Ubima commu­nity in Ikwerre Local Gov­ernment Area of Rivers State, yesterday defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following al­legation that their son and brother, the Minister of Transportation, Hon Roti­mi Chibuike Amaechi, is not representing them well.

Ameachi’s kinsmen ac­cused him of being non­chalant to the plight of his people, especially when they had security chal­lenges.

One of the kinsmen expressed worry that the communi­ty, despite producing a two time Governor, Speaker and now a Minister had no meaningful project to show for it.

According to one of the decampees who gave his name as Anthony Dike, “We are swamping to PDP today because our brother, Rotimi Amaechi, has not done anything in Ubima where he comes from. The youths are not empow­ered. You can see that the community lacks develop­ment and as Governor and now Minister, Amaechi did not attract develop­ment to Ubima”.

However, Peoples Dem­ocratic Party (PDP) in the state, has called for the sack of the Amaechi, for showing disrespect to the office of the Acting Presi­dent, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, during the recent visit of the Acting President to Port Harcourt to commis­sion projects.

The Publicity Secre­tary of the party, Samuel Nwanosike, made the call during the official recep­tion of hundreds of APC decampees in Amaechi’s community of Ubima. He alleged that the former state governor broke pro­tocol twice, thereby dem­onstrating disloyalty to the Ag. President.

He expressed worry over the conduct of the Minister at the Port Har­court International Air­port, Omagwa and when the Prof Osinbajo wanted to go for project commis­sioning, insisting that the behaviour was condem­nable.

“A few days ago, we were at the Port Harcourt Inter­national Airport to receive the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo. It will surprise you to know that somebody, who is a serv­ing Minister, would have the gut to disrespect the Acting President of Nige­ria, by breaking the pro­tocol, abandon traditional rulers and government functionaries lined up for protocol and salute before the Acting President and ran into a Chopper that was waiting for the Acting President.”
