APC to punish Rivers Sate saboteurs

24 August 2015, 07:46

Lagos – The All Progressives Congress (APC) has threatened to discipline alleged saboteurs within the party working with the rival People’s Democratic Congress in the Rivers State to spoil the image of former governor, Rotimi Amaechi.

Amaechi, a key member of the APC, is under probe from the reigning PDP-led administration of Nyesom Wike.

According to Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, Spokesperson of Rivers APC Chairman, Davies Ikanya, the party expressed regret that some saboteurs within the party “have made themselves available for use by Chief Wike in tarnishing Amaechi’s hard-earned reputation just because of pecuniary benefits.”

“We wish to warn these saboteurs to stop playing Judas and return Wike’s money to him or be prepared to face the consequences with their new-found master whose wrongful occupation of the Rivers State Government House will soon be ended by the State Governorship Election Tribunal,” Eze said.

In the latest in a series of tensions characterising the two parties, it was alleged Amaechi had had foreign bank accounts where he stashed some funds.

APC however assured Amaechi of the party’s unflinching support, assuring him that he would be vindicated at the end of the day. – CAJ News
