APC lauds public for bidding Amaechi farewell

06 August 2015, 10:49

Rivers - Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has been put to shame by the large crowd of Nigerians that gathered to honour the immediate past Governor Rotimi Amaechi, and celebrate his legacies.

This is according to the All progressives Congress, which is at loggerheads with Wike following his controversial election to succeed Amaechi.

The event was held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.

“By turning out in large numbers to honour Ex-Governor Amaechi and through their touching testimonies at that grand reception put together by Amaechi’s Committee of Friends, Nigerians have spoken with one loud voice”
said Ikanya.

“…shaming Chief Nyesom Wike, who has devoted the past two months of his illegal occupation of the Government House in Port Harcourt to wage an unnecessary war against the man who made him politically in a desperate bid to tarnish his reputation,” the APC Rivers State Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said.

The party meanwhile condemned Wike’s alleged witch-hunting of Amaechi, noting that it was “a classical case of one biting the finger that once fed him.”

“We are, however, not perturbed by Wike’s antics because, as we have pointed out time without number, the Caretaker Governor is hounding an innocent man and his efforts to rubbish and pull down Amaechi, who is his political mentor, will turn out to be futile,” Ikanya said.

Ikanya appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari’s support of Amaechi despite the so-called witch-hunting.
