Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed claims by beleaguered Deputy National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, that former Rivers Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, was behind his arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes commission (EFCC).
Secondus has recently been released from detention after he allegedly played part in fraudulent car deals.
“If by any turbulence of the mind occasioned by physical and psychological pressure of detention Prince Secondus meant that Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi has a hand his travails, the APC would like the PDP Deputy National Chairman to provide explanation on his charge to Rivers people, nay Nigerians,” APC Rivers Spokeman, Chris Finebone, said.
Finebone said APC found it laughable Secondus could not remember to “blame Satan for tempting him and owning up to his crimes.”
“He had all the days in detention to rehearse what might sound like a credible story for us poor Nigerians rather than pointing at an innocent man working so hard every other day to deliver on the onerous tasks of the Nigerian transportation sector,” said Finebone.

Amaechi is the Transportation Minister.
He urged Secondus to refrain forthwith from dragging the name of Amaechi and the APC into the mud.
“ Prince Secondus should, for once, adorn the garb of courage and stew in his own juice without attempting to obfuscate Nigerians who already know better.”
Secondus is said to have illegally received 23 luxury vehicles valued at
N310 million from controversial businessman, Jide Omokore.
He is among prominent individuals that have been arrested during the current administration’s crusade against corruption.
“We encourage Prince Uche Secondus to do all he can to extricate himself from the claws of President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption moving train so that he can help to patch up the PDP severely torn umbrella,” said Finebone.
