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