APC Rivers lauds senators' support of Ameachi

08 October 2015, 16:08

Rivers - The All Progressives Congress in the Rivers State has hailed the support shown by legislators in opposing a petition against former Governor Rotimi Amaechi.

The Senator representing Rivers East Senatorial District, Senator George Sekibo reportedly attempted to submit a purported petition on the floor of the Senate Wednesday.

APC said , through the action,  Sekibo was “biting the finger that fed  her.”

“We would like to recall that former governor Chibuike Amaechi it was who single-handedly insisted and supported Senator George Sekibo in 2011 against the vehement agitation by Nyesom Wike for the Rivers East Senatorial ticket,” APC Rivers Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone, said.

He said despite being the governor’s Chief of Staff, the then-Governor Amaechi resisted Wike’s intensive lobby and stood by Senator Sekibo to go for a second term.

“Apparently, this is one of the grievances Wike nurses for Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi to this day.”

Finebone expressed joy senators across party lines rose to the defence of Amaechi.

“Our distinguished senators rose beyond partisan and narrow interests when it mattered most and showed that an exceedingly visionary leader like Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi cannot be made a victim of cheap political blackmail by some selfish, misguided and small-minded persons.”

“The APC would like to warn the likes of George Sekibo not to embark on the fruitless enterprise of launching hate campaigns against Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi as God will continue to render such exercises dead on arrival. Whom God has blessed, no man can curse.”

APC’s sentiments follow dramatic events at the Senate on Wednesday when Sekibo, rose to present a petition against the nomination of Amaechi, as a minister in President Buhari’s cabinet.
