APC says doccie a campaign to demonise Amaechi

07 September 2015, 06:55Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has scoffed at recent publications in the media as well as a documentary about former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi.

Chris Finebone, the Rivers State APC Publicity Secretary, said these were part of campaigns by rivals to demonise Amaechi and influence President Muhamadu Buhari against naming him in his cabinet.

Finebone said the documentary had been airing since last Friday.

He described the production, which claims acts of impropriety by Amaechi, was “a highly noxious, obnoxious and vexatious documentary.”

“To the APC, the documentary is all a repetition of the same documentary terrorism the PDP (People’s Democratic Party) deployed against General Muhammadu Buhari during the campaigns for the 2015 general elections.”

He said it was not surprising that the medium for airing the documentary is the same AIT that he said angered Nigerians with documentaries that disparaged Buhari and his family members to ensure Nigerians did not vote for him.

“The present documentary is simply aimed at driving a wedge between the President and the former governor by blackmailing President Buhari from having a place in his government for Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi,” said Finebone.

He also singled out some media of being part of alleged campaigns to demonise Amaechi.

“As part of the strategic plan to destroy the former governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the publication dished out totally fabricated tissues of lies that belong to the very depth of hell aimed at deceiving and hoodwinking the gullible.”

Comment could not be obtained from the parties said to be behind the campaign against Amaechi.
