APC Rivers alleges PDP foul play against Amaechi

01 December 2016, 18:00

Port Harcourt -  The All Progressives Congress (APC) Rivers State chapter has alleged a campaign by the rival People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to tarnish the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The party alleged that a former governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi, now a minister in Buhari’s cabinet, was the chief target.

APC claimed Governor Nyesom Wike and his administration had paid $1,5 million (N471,9 million) to a movie maker to produce and syndicate fabricated video clips on how Amaechi and the Rivers Commissioner of Police purportedly planned to rig the December 10 rerun legislative elections.

“Such a rigging plot exists only in the demented mind of Wike and other Rivers PDP leaders,” said APC Rivers Chairman, Davies Ikanya, said from
Port Harcourt.

It is alleged the plot was hatched in Wike’s office at the Rivers State Government House in Port Harcourt.

APC alleged a popular movie producer in the Nollywood industry was to assemble different clips of the Transport Minister at different
negotiating “a price” with some people.

APC said the idea was to project Amaechi as asking the judges to pervert justice.

The alleged plot was abandoned when the affected judges were contacted.

“The two embattled Supreme Court judges vehemently opposed the idea as that may backfire on them,” Ikanya said.

Ikanga described the alleged campaign as “callous, vindictive, wicked, diversionary and betraying the party’s morbid fear of Amaechi.”

“Most importantly, this is one of the ploys by corrupt PDP and enemies of President Buhari to undermine his administration while also weakening and destroying APC before the 2019 general elections.”
