APC, PDP in new war of words over Amaechi

24 July 2015, 10:04

Abuja - All Progressives Congress has hit back at the People’s Democratic Party after the latter alleged President Muhammadu Buhari was shielding former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, from prosecution.

PDP made the allegation through a statement by Felix Obua, Rivers State PDP Chairman, signed by his media assistant, Jerry Needam.

“An overview of the eight-paragraph gibberish write-up undeniably offers a pen picture of an unstable state of mind of the writer, his boss and political party.  Indeed, it tells of a group of persons who are operating within the horribly pathetic world of full-blown lunacy,” Chris Finebone APC Rivers State Publicity Secretary, said.

He said the APC believed that the “obsession with Amaechi by Jerry Needam and his so-called sponsors was a testimony of a deliberate plot to discredit the former governor at all cost.

“It underscores the real reasons for the so-called judicial commission of inquiry set up by the Rivers State Governor, Barr. Nyesom Wike. The APC is sure that those who are digging ditches for former Governor Chibuike Amaechi will ultimately become victims of their own devices.”

Finebone insisted no amount of blackmail on Amaechi and the ongoing blackmail on President Muhammadu Buhari would stir up ill feelings between the duo.

“As many times as they try shall they fail,” Finebone said.
