APC Rivers elated at Amaechi's ministerial confirmation

30 October 2015, 11:04Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has hailed the confirmation of the immediate past governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi, as a Minister.

The party said the confirmation was a victory over the so-called forces of darkness.

“These dark forces as represented by Caretaker Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, went to absurd lengths in their plot to stop Amaechi from becoming a Minister but Almighty God has used President Muhammadu Buhari and the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to scatter their evil plans,” Rivers APC Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said in Port Harcourt.

Wike, the current governor, has instituted a probe against Amaechi over allegations of corruption and maladministration.

This is among developments critics to the former governor based their opposition to the appointment of Amaechi as Minister on.

“The 29th October, 2015, will remain a great milestone in the annals of Rivers State when against all odds, centering around the mischievous propaganda by enemies of the State led by the impostor Governor Nyesom Wike, the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria confirmed one of the best sons of Rivers State, Rt Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, as a Ministe," said Ikanya.

Rivers APC commended Buhari for nominating Amaechi and the Eighth Senate for confirming him.

“Wike, who has done everything humanly possible to bring down Amaechi, who made him politically, has been put to shame along with his collaborators, especially Senator Thompson Sekibo.

"They should not only bury their faces in shame but should also apologise to Nigerians for their failed coup against their benefactor,” said Ikanya.
