Rivers APC threatens to “expose” PDP chairman

05 October 2015, 08:47Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reprimanded the National Chairman of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, after he reportedly criticised former Governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

Chairman of the APC Rivers, Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, advised Secondus to “leave the former Rivers State Governor alone or the party will be forced to expose him.”

Ikanya was reacting to the “unprovoked attack” which Secondus reportedly launched on Amaechi recently while receiving the report of the Senator Ike Ekweremadu-led committee on how to reform and reposition the former ruling party, PDP, for the 2019 general elections.

Ikanya said Rivers APC wondered why Secondus, rather than concentrating on the recommendations of the Ekweremadu committee and addressing the issues raised in the committee’s report on how to get back PDP on track, chose to “play to the gallery” by asking President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate Amaechi.

The Rivers PDP-led government is probing Amaechi for alleged maladministration and corruption.

However, Ikanya said the former governor, who was at the helm from 2007 to 2015, “has no skeleton in his cupboard unlike Secondus, whose cupboard is full of skeletons.”

“We appreciate the agony of Prince Uche Secondus, one of the key architects of PDP’s loss of power after 16 years of misrule,” said Ikanya.

“We also understand his frustration in his very difficult assignment of reinventing PDP, a party the death of which he and some other tin gods caused by frustrating Amaechi and other progressives who were the souls of PDP out of the party.”

Comment could not be obtained from the PDP.
