Amaechi, Abe loyalists differ on reconciliation in Rivers APC

Members of the Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress loyal to the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; and supporters of the Senator Magnus Abe-led faction of the party, have accused each other of threatening to destabilise the party.


State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Ogbonna Nwuke, who is an ally of the minister, in a statement, in Port Harcourt, on Wednesday, said, “As we speak, we have come upon credible information that allies of Governor Wike and Senator Magnus Abe have lined up new cases that are being filed by different persons at this time.”


He further said, “We have also learnt that some members of a judicial ring that has been used repeatedly in the past to deliver objectionable decisions are to be used as vacation judges.


“The plan is to secure injunctions by any means possible; injunctions intended to halt the APC, which, by the grace of God, and the leadership of Rt. Hon Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation, is transforming into the mainstream party of the Rivers people.”


In response, a former member of the State House of Assembly who is an ally of Senator Abe, Golden Chioma said, “To be fair to you, Ogbonna Nwuke is very aware that he is lying. Senator Magnus Abe in well-orchestrated public events had told everybody that he is not interested in legal solution. Rather, he would exploit a political solution to the crisis in the party.

“It is also a known fact that the Senator Abe group would bend over backwards to show good faith in reconciling the party.


“We have done everything humanly possible for us to reconcile, but the other side is bent on acquisition or conquest, but peace.


“It is unfair to human understanding. Every man was born with inalienable rights to express himself or to seek justice.


“Even if it is your slave, there is a way you run your slave, he will start to object. Even when you own a bull and you use it to plough your field, when you over plough with the bull, it will stop.”
