  • Rivers APC: Why Abe is fighting Amaechi
  • Some chiefs of the All Progressives Congress,
    APC, party in Rivers state who preferred not to
    be mentioned, have revealed that the
    governorship ambition of the senator
    representing Rivers South East, Senator Magnus
    Abe is the major reason why the Senator is
    fighting the Minister of Transportation and
    former Governor of Rivers state, Rt. Hon.
    Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
    They also said that Senator Abe who wanted
    Amaechi to anoint or support him as the next
    APC Governorship candidate in the state come
    2019, however, resorted to character
    assassination of the minister whom, according
    to them, by his judgement, is opposed to his
    ambition.
    They also said that Senator Abe betrayed
    Amaechi whom they said was the man who
    made him have political clout in Rivers state and
    Nigeria as a whole.
    Although the rumour making the rounds has it
    that the rift between both men is equally the root
    cause of a crisis in the state’s party, the
    Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC),
    Rivers State, Chief Davies Ibiamu Ikanya,
    however, debunked any such claim, saying there
    is no crisis at all in the party.
    One of the chiefs said, “All these stories of
    Amaechi trying to stop Abe from getting the APC
    governorship ticket in 2019 are not true. These
    are the false narratives Abe and a handful of his
    cronies want people to believe as the reason
    behind the issues they are having. But it’s
    simply a lie, a concocted story to make Abe
    look like the victim, and wickedly albeit wrongly
    portray Amaechi as an oppressive dictator.
    “The real issue between them is that Abe wants
    Amaechi to ‘anoint’ him as the Rivers APC
    gubernatorial candidate. Abe wants to be
    governor. That’s fine and good. But it is his
    desperation and the underhand tactics he is now
    using to get Amaechi to support and ‘anoint’
    him as the Rivers APC candidate for the 2019
    governorship elections that is causing all these
    problems between them.”
    The party chief said that Amaechi refused to
    ‘anoint’ Abe or any other APC member nursing
    the ambition of running for governor in 2019,
    because “Amaechi’s position as the Leader of
    the party in Rivers State was that everyone with
    ambition to run for any elective office should
    hold it, keep it and work to build the party first.
    “Amaechi made it clear that for the whole of
    2017, rebuilding and re-strengthening the party
    should be the focus and goal of all APC
    members, and not campaigning for any elective
    office, whether openly or surreptitiously. That
    it’s a bit too early for campaigns.
    “He advised that at the appropriate time, when
    the time is right, every aspirant could then come
    out and campaign openly and that all APC party
    candidates for all elective offices would emerge
    through the laid down process in the party’s
    constitution for the emergence of party
    candidates.
    “Amaechi pointedly told the Director-General of
    NIMASA and the APC 2015 governorship
    candidate Dakuku Peterside and Abe not to heat
    up and divide the party in the state with their
    governorship ambitions. He advised them to
    keep their ambitions for now, work together in
    unity and harmony to build the party first. But
    for reasons best known to Abe, he decided to
    misconstrue Amaechi’s directives to build the
    party first, as lack of support for him (Abe) and
    his governorship ambition.
    “Abe started telling anyone, who cares to listen,
    that Amaechi hates him, that Amaechi does not
    want to support and ‘anoint’ him as APC
    governorship candidate, and that Amaechi does
    not want him to be governor of Rivers State. A
    handful of Abe’s cronies started spreading the
    false narrative. They used the traditional media,
    social media and word of mouth to spread the
    lie that Amaechi wants to stop or block Abe’s
    ambition and started abusing, denigrating and
    calling Amaechi, the leader of APC in the State
    all sorts of names.
    “Abe and his cronies in the party which are very
    few went further to try to undermine Amaechi’s
    leadership of the party in the state. They would
    always go contrary to and against the party
    position on any issue; they started leaking to
    the public, through different means, details of
    private party meetings with Amaechi.
    “They were not just leaking but were also
    twisting the details from these meetings, most
    times, completely concocting and fabricating
    comments and ascribing these statements to
    Amaechi just to serve their ulterior agenda,” he
    said.
    Another chief said, “What Abe is currently
    instigating and doing against Amaechi is so
    wrong and immoral. Abe is deceptively playing
    the victim to portray Amaechi as the evil
    emperor villain. But that is not true, neither is it
    the true situation of things. Abe can’t and
    should not do this to Amaechi. Amaechi has
    done so much, far so much for Abe. Agreed,
    Amaechi is not God, but God used Amaechi to
    make Abe who he is today.
    “God used Amaechi to make Abe, the Minority
    Leader of the Rivers State House of Assembly,
    when Amaechi was the Speaker; God used
    Amaechi to make Abe Commissioner for
    Information for four years when Peter Odili was
    governor of Rivers State; God used Amaechi to
    appoint Abe the Secretary to the State
    Government for four years, when Amaechi was
    Governor of the State; and who in Nigeria does
    not know that Amaechi was instrumental to
    making Abe a two-term senator today?
    “Magnus Abe and his cronies should not bite the
    fingers that fed them and still feeding them. Abe
    can have any ambition and run for any office he
    wants. No one can or will stop him, just as he
    can’t force anyone to support or ‘anoint’ him as
    APC governorship candidate. This attempt to
    move against Amaechi because Amaechi has
    refused to ‘anoint’ him or because he perceives
    that Amaechi may not support him is so wrong,”
    he said.
    Moreover, the Rivers APC Chairman, Chief
    Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, in a statement to
    Vanguard said reiterated that there is no crisis
    in Rivers APC and that all the executive
    members of the party remained intact.
    He said the clarification was necessary as the
    rumour had it that the Transport Minister,
    Amaechi, sacked some of the party’s executives.
    Describing such claims as pure false and
    misleading, Chief Ikanya said that, rather, what
    happened was that Amaechi reshuffled his own
    personal team in the state which is different from
    the party. He also said that being the person
    who formed the team in the first place, Amaechi
    had the right to make whatever changes he
    deemed fit within his own team.
    The state’s party Chairman however advised
    Nigerians to disregard the rumours aimed at
    dragging the good name of the Transport
    Minister to the mud.
    “Our attention has been drawn to all the
    hullabaloo, fake news and mostly distorted,
    inaccurate and misleading reports in the media,
    especially in the social media about a non-
    existent crisis due to some purported changes
    in the leadership of the All Progressives
    Congress(APC) in Rivers State. This is not true,
    entirely false and misleading. For clarity, we
    wish to state categorically that:
    “1. All members of the All Progressives
    Congress(APC) leadership in Rivers State are
    intact. From our ward officers to State party
    executives, no one has been removed or
    suspended from office.
    “2. We are aware that our leader, the leader of
    the party in the state, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi
    Amaechi is making some changes in his
    personal political group, team or caucus in the
    State. It is his right and prerogative to make any
    leadership changes within his own political
    team, group or caucus. Amaechi created the
    caucus, team or group, appointed its members
    and leaders and so can make any changes he
    deems fit with this is personal group, team or
    caucus.”
    “But we must emphasize that these changes by
    the Honourable Minister of Transportation within
    his personal political team, group or caucus has
    absolutely nothing to do with the party
    leadership structure and does not affect the
    party leadership structures at all levels in the
    State.
    “3. Contrary to fake wild speculations and
    deliberately misleading insinuations, no member
    of the party in the State is been stopped or
    prevented from having ambition or wanting to
    seek for any elective office. And we must
    reinstate here that no APC member will be
    stopped or prevented from seeking any elective
    office. We know for a fact that as a consummate
    democrat, our leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi
    Amaechi has not and will not stop, prevent or
    even attempt to discourage any party member
    from seeking any political office, elective or
    otherwise.
    “4.For the purpose of clarity, we want to
    emphasize that as a truly democratic party, The
    APC in Rivers State will ensure a level-playing
    field for all its aspirants to any elective political
    office. In accordance with our party rules,
    regulations and constitution, we shall be fair to
    all aspirants and will always ensure that the
    process leading to the emergence of our
    candidates for all elective political offices is free,
    fair and credible.
    “5.Sadly, this morning, we have seen or heard
    disparaging comments in the media attributed to
    less than a handful of party members on this
    issue. We suspect that they were misquoted or
    even didn’t say what were attributed to them.
    With the deluge of orchestrated false and fake
    stories about our party and our leader, Rt. Hon.
    Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi in some segments of
    the media today, we are constrained to believe
    that these comments are fake like the false and
    fake stories been peddled to the media by
    detractors about a non-existent crisis in the
    Rivers State chapter of the APC; and fake
    comments that are been deceitfully and
    misleadingly attributed to our leader, Rt. Hon.
    Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
    “6. Finally, we want to remind and appeal to all
    APC party members in Rivers State that we are
    just half way into 2017, and campaigns for the
    various 2019 elections are yet to commence.
    Therefore, this is the time to join hands, come
    together and work in harmony to build a
    stronger and better party that will defeat our
    opponents at the polls in 2019.”
